Seattle WA Mechanic Recommendation for 2005 OBXT for an antifreeze smell

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,


I bought a 2005 OBXT with around 120k on it a couple weeks ago from a dealer and I've been driving it around with no problems.


I recently started noticing a slight antifreeze smell when I'd get out of my car, I thought it was someone else's car, but its seemed to get a bit stronger.


I'm thinking I need to take it in and get it checked out before anything goes wrong. I live in Seattle Washington and would love any suggestions you may have for a place.


If you have any idea what the smell might be, I'm open to looking into it myself as well. It only happens when the car is warmed up. Sometimes its after a short distance (driving for around 15 minutes or so)

I've checked the fluid levels, and everything seems ok, so it is most likely a small leak, but I want to be safe.



I just want this thing to last and want to make sure that nothing goes wrong with it.


Thanks for the help and advice in advance!

Dealer should cover it under the 30 day warranty ???

I tried that, but the dealer isn't stepping up to the plate. Its a bit frustrating.

I'm taking it into R&H Garage today. We'll see what they say.


Thanks guys!
