The nose knows when something isn’t quite right: the Car
Care Council shared this educational infographic which easily outlines six car
smells that could mean trouble for your vehicle to help drivers sniff out when
something may be wrong with their car.
We all love basking in that “new car smell,” but there are
other odors we should never ignore. Identifying these suspicious smells early
on can help car owners avoid the hassle and expense of an unexpected breakdown,
says the Car Care Council.
The Car Care Council provides tips like these as
part of its free “Be Car Care Aware” education campaign to consumers to help reinforce
the benefits of regular vehicle care, maintenance, and repair.
“When you smell any peculiar odor, you should not ignore it.
Instead bring your vehicle to a professional service technician that you trust
to get an informed opinion on the nature of the odor,” says Rich White, executive
director, Car Care Council.
