We recently bought the 2020 Palisade which we love but... after driving it we started to smell a strong burning smell. The smell was so strong that even our children began to notice. We stopped the car to check it out and took the vehicle in. They said it was nothing just a brand new car. We had new cars before. I never experienced that. We took it for a second opinion and right away the mechanic smelled it. We took it back to the dealership but they keep giving us the run around with appointments. The car still smells like something is burning and it has more than enough miles on it. Is anyone else having this problem? Help..

No, everything was checked. We are about 6 months in and the smell is persistent when the A/C is on and Especially when the heater is on even when it’s on low.

Well i don't understand the dealer giving you the run around with appointments you have to make one to get a Tech to trouble shoot also can you smell this burning smell out side of your vehicle and a possibility it could be a very small oil leak dripping on hot exhaust or as mentioned small plastic bag rag caught in the exhaust I would if you are able to visually check your engine compartment and transmission for any obvious defects. I would suggest calling and making an appointment to get it looked at.

I had a burning smell when I first got the Palisade, it goes away. I have experienced the burning smell with several new cars, it's common.

Yes I bought one 2 months ago and every time I turn it on produces so much smoke it seems as a house is burning. It is a cloud of smoke. I called to take it in because after 8 weeks it keeps producing to much smoke. What they said was the same they yold you, it is because it is new, but two of my children bought two cars, a Kia Seltos, one month new and a Kia Forte, 12 month ago and neither ever has produce smoke when starting them, never. I feel ashame when I turn and run my Palisade smoking all around and the neighbors stay starring at us. I read some information and it seems to me it has a fabric production problem. It might have a coolant gasket pouring coolant on the cylinders. I am waiting to see what happens after the first oil change. If it continues I do not want it and I will make all my efforts to buy another different car.

Read the other blog posts in this forum ref. an odd odor. It’s common. Seems to be pinpointed in the headrest. An after market adhesive apparently. Our 2020 Limited with black names leather has the odor too. Research and challenge local dealership to fix! Ron in San Antonio.

Hyundai has a reputation for not addressing issues until NHTSA gets involved. They currently have millions of cars under recall. The garlic smell in my car is another example of them trying to hide from the issue. They have been building the palisade for 2 years knowing this was a problem. No more for me!
Joined 6 hours ago and 6 posts slamming the Palisade. Are we looking at a slam an hour until you leave the forum?

Yesterday after my wife got home I was in the garage and noticed a burning smell outside the car not inside. This was the only time I noticed this. We have about 600 miles on the car.

About a month after I got my palisade I realized I had never looked under the hood. To my surprise, I found numerous pieces of plastic film that had not been removed. If they came off and stuck to a hot part of the motor, they would surely cause a bad smell.

The first thing I did when I got home from the purchase was open the hood... and looked around... and checked the oil level.
