I live in the North East and Have a steep Driveway. I routinely need four wheel drive to get to my house. The past few times I have used my four wheel drive, the moment I step out of the truck I smell something burnt, and before I can trace it to the source it's gone. My first insitinct placed it as an electrical smell, but I really don't know. I've never smelled anything quite like it before. It's definitely not rubber or brake. and it is definitely new, last winter it never happened.
I figured it was worth a shot to see if anyone else has had the same issue.
