Hi All
Newbie to this forum but would ask for some help! Bought an 05 Sportage petrol a couple of months ago and am very pleased with it, however when we tow our caravan (which is only 1280Kg) whenever we go up a hill a smell like very hot plastic comes into the car. The temperature guage rises a small amount but doesn't reach the mid level. Have had the car checked at a garage and they say that the fan is working ok - does anyone have any experience of this happening to their car?

Thanks Evs

I have the crdi version,and like you i pull an 800 kg caravan,have noticed on a particular stretch of motorway, which is a steady gradient i get a smell of what i would say is more rubbery than plastic,it lasts to the top of the gradient then goes,dont know if this smell is the car or from something outside,I cannot work it out either,you are not alone?
