According to an eyewitness, smoke poured out of the engine and the driver managed to stop before it could catch fire.

There was also a Ford Figo which caught fire in Mbombela this morning.

Lawyer for disaffected Ford customers, Rod Montano, says more and more Ford owners are coming forward.

"Subsequent to the media exposure over the last few days, we are then slowly being contacted by other people who are claiming that their resale value has dropped," says Montano.

Montano says the class action suit against Ford relates to two broad classes.

"Those that have suffered direct damage in terms of loss, namely the ones that have burned, and then there is a second group that relates to a depreciation of the trade-in or resale value of the vehicle," says Montano.
