Burning smell

Post by The Cooler King » Sat Aug 04, 2018 2:21 pm

Yesterday we picked up our new Ateca and after about an hours drive we could smell burning coming from under the car. Again today I could smell it coming from the exhaust. Anyone else experienced this? It’s a 1.4 TSI DSG Petrol.

Probally some stickers or other factory-new stuff being burned out.
Should go away as Fred said.
