That's funny, I paid $500 for mine and it would start with a huge cloud of smoke as well.
One night I almost burned myself up in that car when I
passed out in the driver's seat with my knee on the cigarette lighter, holding it in. I woke up in time to see smoke and smell plastic burning in the dash and around the lighter.
