I have a 2016 2.0 hatchback that recently started having a scent that smells like an old truck motor from the outside and in the cabin. I only smell this on a warmer day. I also checked and I do not see any oil leaks and its clean all over.

Anyone else experiencing this? I drive maybe 10 miles to work and back home.

I'll take off the panel this weekend look from underneath. I took a flash light from above and looked. Everything was clean with no staining. Its a smell that comes and goes.

If I'm reading the factory warranty right, all seals are covered.

Yes all seals should be covered. Things that aren't are normal maintenane items or one that you might trash out of your own stupidity. The clutch for example.

Given the smell, I'd be checking for a leak onto the exhaust. Might not be very big.

Possibly dirty cabin air filter for the smell getting inside? But I'd check under the engine first and go from there bud :)
