Odor from front hood during defogging
By Jay on


2007 Subaru Legacy 2.5i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


I wouldn't mind if fuel economy was the only setback. I have odor problem. I am surprised I never read any complaints of this from Legacy owners??? During de-fogging operation, the air comes from the outside of the car, thru the front hood. I smell exhaust (?) odor. I went to the dealer and they said they found no problem. There is a rubber pad that isolates the air inlet of the hood from the engine compartment. I think this Legacy has a poor design on blocking odor from the engine area. I noticed other models (Acura, Toyota etc) have better isolation pads.

AWD is probably one of the best around, but it seems other makers are catching up these days.
