After a few long drives recently, i've been smelling what seems to be a faint burning rubber smell. I can smell it through the air vents as well as outside the car. it has to be coming from the engine compartment. I have to get an oil change sometime soon but its been this way for about the past 1500 miles or so. I have a total of 6100 miles on my 06 and have never driven it hard (no launches or quick shifts) and normally only smell it after long drives (over 30-40 miles).

Any assistance?

yep I would check the AC drain if you put in an aftermarket DP. That is what it was on my 05. If its not that, there is a rubber coating that is sprayed on the undernieth of the car that will also heat and burn off sometimes....
