As of still U.S has not been reported for any fire accidents.

Reports say that when the vehicle is driven with the transmission in manual mode and left in first gear for a prolonged period, the vehicle's power steering fluid may overheat which causes the fluid reservoir to leak and may even lead to fire in the presence of an ignition source.

Dealers will replace the power steering fluid loop cooler with a more efficient cooler at no cost.
