Bonjour everyone,
Have 2013 SF turbo with appx 85000 kms/53000 miles and I'm getting a burnt rubber type smell from right rear wheel area.
Have driven 250 kms, average speed 117 kmh, round trip and no odor when entering/parking car in garage at home.
Have driven 35 kms and when parking car in garage, the odor is very strong.
Touched tires, rims and hub and there is no heat.
Took it to garage and, of course, no odor. Took wheel off, disc and pads too, nothing is noticeable.
Caliper and handbrake operation is free, no sticking.

One other thing, no plastic stuck on exhaust.

Has anyone experienced this phenom???
Thanks in advance,
DavidB.

Bit of an up date:
talked to a certified Hyundai mechanic and he has seen in the past the odd Santa Fe where (in winter) sand and calcium stick to right side of the car, on the exhaust/muffler. This could cause the same odor. Used pressure washer and scraper to remove. Seems a bit logical, will verify in early May only, as the car is stored until that time.
Any other ideas from the group.
Regards,
David
