Re: New Hemi smell??

My 2013 Summit also has this smell. Have no idea what it is but my last V8 Overland did not do this. Saw a earlier thread where they were told it was a leak in the rear seal but they said the smell was like burnt oil. Really dont know what mine smells like but a strange burnt smell. Have 1400 miles at this time. Any feedback would be great. Thanks

I chose the easy route by going with the " dont worry it will go away".....

Re: New Hemi smell??

While test driving, I smelled the same thing. Thought oil or something was burning and my wife thought it smelled like a Christmas tree.
