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.
