Another Ford Kuga driver, Warren Krog, was driving when he saw smoke emitting from his car's engine. He tried to make his way to a Ford dealership in Alberton this morning but the vehicle burst into flames on the Voortrekker Road off-ramp.
EWN's Gia Niccolaides says Ford has asked drivers to bring the vehicles in for a free maintenance check.
