  • 68 miles
With 68 miles on car, a click sound is always heard each time the air conditioning button is pressed to on position/light and the engine smells hot and gives off a burning smell every single time the car goes over 65 mph/acceleration from 60 to 65mph or from any other speed/mph up to 65mph makes the smell of a hot engine. There is no smoking but the air in the car smells at 65mph so I go 60mph to prevent the smell because it makes me very nervous. The car has not lost compression at any speed/climbs hills/but the smell happens when climbing a hill as well as being in motion at any speed or mph climbing the steep hills of NY. For instance if the speed limit is 30mph at the bottom of a hill and 55mph at the top of the hill, the cars engine will smell hot. No gages or red lights occur to indicate overheating. Radiator is not a problem because there is no light or no steam or smoke to indicate the problem. This only happens when the car is in motion. It is a standard/manual shift. And I did experience the pedal operation compromised when my shoe was caught under the side panel. I changed shoes then the problem was resolved....except for the recall which is necessary.

I was coming out of my drive way at 5-10 mph and the car accelerated without me putting my foot on the gas. It was not a huge acceleration but I still have concerns.
