Gas/burning metal smell

Post by dodge1201 » Sat Sep 09, 2017 2:01 pm

Only had the car a few days and when running at low speed or standstill a gassy/aluminium smell comes into the cabin. Phoned dealer and they said it's probably the engine manifold heating up and it may smell for a few 100 miles or so and till it is run in a bit more. Anyone else had the same issue? If it continues more than another week I'll take it back in to get looked at.

Only driven mine for ten miles but after driving I could smell something burning which smelt like the brakes which is normal I guess for a new car as everything is worn in

Obviously the same smell. Wife won't go in the car until the smell goes, every cloud! 😂

Same for me. Enjoying the car so much I stopped thinking about it.

I have a similar smell too. I'm now at 700 miles and I haven't smelt it for awhile.
