The smell of burning rubber is a unique odor that most drivers notice right away. It’s common after collisions in which the driver didn’t think there was a need to take their vehicle to a repair shop. Unfortunately, this can cause major issues in the long run. If it’s not a tire care issue, other parts might be at play. Two major reasons for this rubbery smell are a drive belt that has slipped or a hose that was knocked loose and is now rubbing. Thankfully, this is an easy fix. All you need is to do a little tightening!
Still, if you have a strange car smell that you’re concerned about, you should have it checked out. Just make sure it’s a body shop you can trust.
