The exhaust piple smells like burnt carmel or peanut oil:/ I don’t notice it while I’m driving but it’s overwhelming when I open the hatchback. Car is 3 years ol, 13,000 miles and I’ve only had it 2 months. It’s at dealership now and they think “an animal put something in the tailpipe”. The car is stored in garage overnight so I don’t know how an animal would have access to do this sort of mischief. Any thoughts out there?!
UPDATE: Dealership took exhaust off the car and there was DOG FOOD in the tail pipe!! The mechanic said the chicken in the dog food “cooks” and causes the smell. They think a mouse or something put the dog food in there. Utterly bizarre.
