GM had already been through a class-action suit over the British-built Vauxhall Firenza it first imported to Canada in 1971 and which had a tendency to catch fire. A decade later, it was back to the barbecue with the Pontiac Fiero, sold on both sides of the border. The two-seater, mid-engine, plastic-bodied Fiero debuted for 1984. Its four-cylinder engine had several problems, including wiring routed over the manifold, a tiny oil reservoir that could starve the engine, and faulty connecting rods. Some 260 of them caught fire. The V6 version was fine, but GM recalled every four-cylinder model, and discontinued the Fiero entirely after 1988.
