I recently noticed a burning smell (smells like rubber) coming from the front of my 2001 XC70. The smell occurs when the engine is warm. The oil is changed on a regular basis, the tires are new, the brakes are new, and the 30K mile tune-up was done less than a year ago.

The car only has 32K miles and has been nothing but a headache for us. The front left and right sway bars links were faulty and replaced, the left inner tie rod was faulty and replaced, the brake booster was faulty and replaced, and the struts were faulty and replaced. Fortunately, all were covered under waranty.

Now the "smell" has occured....

Any ideas what it may be???

Open your hood and look at the engine mount that is located on the top of the engine some times it gets old and falls apart.A peice will sometimes fall on the exhaust causing the burning smell.
