Thumbs down Nissan ABS Fire - Anyone Else?

I had one of the Nissan Murano's that caught fire. Nissan denied it all until the recall. Anyone else? One even caught fire in the Nissan Dealership. Trying to determine how many have ignited, who knew what and when did they know it. Thank you.

Nissan Murano - Caution - Flammable <>

Summary
Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 Nissan Maxima vehicles manufactured February 10, 2015, to August 19, 2016 and equipped with Intelligent Cruise Control, 2015-2017 Murano vehicles manufactured August 22, 2014, to August 19, 2016 and equipped with Intelligent Cruise Control, and 2015-2016 Murano Hybrid vehicles manufactured August 22, 2014, to July 19, 2016. The affected vehicles have Anti-Lock Brake (ABS) actuator pumps that may allow brake fluid to leak onto an internal electrical circuit board.

Consequence
A brake fluid leak onto the circuit board will cause your car to ignite.

Advice
Park outside. Do not buy this car, new or used.

Recommending not to buy a vehicle because of an extraordinarily small chance of a defect? Might want to check how frequently this type of thing happens on ALL makes and models.

Yup, get perspective.

Things break. Every now and then it causes something interesting.

And why, Mr/Ms OP, does someone feel compelled to go to Murano board and post this as their first interaction?

Can you say Troll?

I knew you could....
