Good morning to you all,
I am the new owner of a 2007 M35x. Its an exceptionally clean car with 1 owner, and regular maintenance at Infiniti its whole life. I picked it up yesterday, and drove home (on the highway at 70 mph for 15 minutes or so), and pulled into the garage. Upon exiting the car, I could smell what I can only describe as a burning metal smell.
It wasn't oil or coolant or rubber...it was like when you get a new exhaust...and the hot pipes cause that smell for about three days until it all burns off...that's kind of what it smelled like. Its my best description.
I didn't inspect anything (stupid), due to me being in a rush, so dismissed it.
Today, I only drove about 5 miles into work, and didn't get the car above 50 mph...and I didn't smell a thing.
Can anyone please help me pinpoint what the heck that smell could have been associated with? I have heard maybe a frozen caliper? But the car never seemed like it wanted to brake when I let off the gas pedal.
ANY help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all in advance!! I look forward to hearing from all you experts!
