1200 miles Turbo burnt out
So while cruising home from Vermont I noticed a weird metal burning smell and had pulled over to check oil and fluids. everything was normal,continued driving and once I got back into nj I noticed it had gotten worse, took it to dealer today by my mothers house and turns out the turbo is shot. Im kinda confused cause i really dont boost the car at all and I babby it to get decent millage and I run 93octane only. I hope this was just a factory fluke ad not something to be a normal occurrence on these cars.

Sorry to hear about the car!

This is the first I've heard of mechanical issues and you may have just caught some bad luck. Hopefully it all works out for you in the end!
