Whats your new car taste like?

Post by garym999 » Fri Jun 14, 2019 12:59 pm

HI All, Over the years I have been fortunate enough to have quite a few new cars all with that new car smell. But my new Kodiaq has a new car taste!

It sits at the back of the throat and tastes dry. I'm two weeks in and it has not dimisinshed. I wondered what it is?

Welcome to the forum Gary.
I'm afraid I haven't a clue re the 'taste' . some type of glue perhaps? Not something I have come across.

Usually you sniff the glue, no?

Zach..... Never, nor, unlike most British politicians apparently, have I ever smoked a spliff, snorted or injected any illegal substances. :lol:
You don't have to sniff things to smell them. Have you farted recently!! :lol:

I thought I was going mad! I picked up my Scout a week ago, and noticed a funny taste, almost like a diesely aftertaste (not that that makes any sense). Still there now, and no, it's not diesel as it's a 2.0 TSI.

Thanks. Make sure it is cold, and the car crawls. Without using accelerator.

Sorry for late reply, just listened as the missus backed off the drive (with no accelerator, crawling). Exactly the same noise.
