Description: I was driving my sister to school one day and as I hopped on the highway, I started to smell something burning. I looked over and I saw smoke coming from the floor. I first thought my sister dropped her cigarette, but then the carpet melted and I saw flames spreading faster that I could have imagined. I slammed on the brakes and pulled over, while at the same time dumping my water bottle on the flames, which (fortunately!) put it out. My sister got picked up by my aunt, and I pulled the passenger seat out and pulled the carpet up. What followed next, was about 5 minutes worth of unprintable obscenity, cussing and swearing. (I had also burned my hand pretty good while pulling the carpet up too!) I was pissed, upset, and really discouraged when I saw the hole in the floor. I managed to get the car back home and gutted the carpet and interior. The carpet had a quarter sized hole in it that I can patch. I started to get estimates on having it repaired and got figures around $800 to $1700. Fortunately my uncle got me in touch with a friend of his and he will do it for $200. I bought a new stamped pan for $250. I figure $450 for major floor repair is a fair deal and it will be fixed soon!
