My brother in law's 2014 maverick max xrs burnt to the ground thanksgiving night. He bought it new as a left over 6 months ago it had less than 500 miles on it. He was on his way home and he could smell oil burning so he pulled over and it shut off. When he looked back he saw the flames. By the time they got out and away it was totally engulfed in flames. All thats left is the frame and the half melted engine. Has anyone else heard of these maverick's burning up like this?

Did can-am cover any of that or did he have to go through his insurance? Did they figure out what caused his fire?

This one looks like it started in the back, gas can spillage? A lot of SXS fires are due to this.

What was final outcome? I bought a brand new maverick and was driving it home and had gone less than 5 miles and mine bust into flames and I barely got out of it and lost a lot of my beard and hair from having to exit thru a wall of flames!
