There is no break-in period, per se, with the newer Volvos...7000km is about 4300 miles. Yes, most systems should be "settled" by now but that burnt smell should not worry you unless you put the car up on the lift and you notice oil leaking and probably hitting a hot part of the engine or getting splashed backwards, toward the catalytic converter. I rarely flog my car but after a few hard accelerations I have smelled "something burning" probably up to 9,000 miles or so (14400km). I have 14,800 miles now and I do not notice that anymore.quote:

Shouldn't that be far from the break in period already?
