Hey peeps,

I have noticed lately that my 2K1 Tib is emitting a kind of burning smell and when I remove the key from the ignition, it is VERY hot! Has anyone else ever noticed this problem or heard anything about it?<img src=icon_smile_8ball.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_angry.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_8ball.gif border=0 align=middle>

no, i don't have anything near that problem, you should take the car to the dealership and get it checked out, could be a short or something in the ignition and it could catch fire

I noticed the other day that my key was hot when I took it out of the ignition after driving about 75 miles. It felt like the heat was on in my car because my feet where hot but I dont know if it was just because the air wasn't circulating enough. There is no burning smell tho. Should I get it checked?

maybe, perhaps there is a flaw or something with the car and we may see a recall for something. Hopefully it wouldn't be widespread to hurt the hyundai rep

I had a burning smell coming from my 2000 Tibby. I took it right in to the dealer and you know what it was? A plastic bag melted onto the exhaust!

Take it in right away and make sure it's not anything serious!
