Burning smell when using clutch
I've had my Celica for 5 months, i have noticed that the clutch produces a burning smell when operating the clutch, when parking or waiting in traffic with the clutch held down. I've been to Toyota who said this is common in all Celica's and Rav 4. Just wondering if anybody else has had the same problem.

Are you sure you have the pedal all the way down?

Is common for the celicas and rav4 to produce the burning smell? BS! What kind of a stinky ass car.

They are prolly telling you that because they do not want to deal with fixing the problem. Bring it back to them and tell them to f*ck off and fix your car. A 5 months old car that smells is b*llshit. You are paying good money so fight for it!
