just heard from dealer that all the S40 T5s sold in my country are getting a recall to replace fuel line with a teflon coated one.<p>this is to fix the "burning smell" people have reported in cabins in WOT driving.

jleib,<p>Do you smell something burning when you first start the car or is it during wot. I get it when I first start the car, the dealer said it was from the paint and new materials in the exhaust and should go away with time. 15k later it still hasnt gone away.

I'm going to guess this is additional heat shielding between the exhaust and the underbody, and the fuel line is only part of the changes. I wonder if this is specific to tropical areas, or if it's a general TNN. I haven't noticed this smell, at least.<p>Tom.
