Re: Diesel overland burning smell at idle during test drive

This was widely reported when they first started shipping. They all "burn off" various assembly lubes, shipping sealants, and stickers which smell funny. The first regen event which can happen in 50 to 280 miles, will burn off some more residue. After a few long trips, its all done.

I did not buy the diesel, I bought a Summit w/ Blu-Ray with the 5.7L. I would have bought the diesel if they had one in the Summit fully loaded including the Blu-Ray player, regardless if it had the burning smell or not. I'd figure that burning smell was only temporary....hopefully! lol!
