I came down a 5 mile winding mountain road this morning. Smelled sumpin (also smelled this at the dealer test drive I think) ...

Front right passenger wheel was lightly smoking ... could this be mud or water on the rotor or am I lookin at sumpin else?

Were talkin a 2002 OB Ltd with 66k.

It was a 2 lane concrete road. About 7 hairpins taken at under 30 mph.

Stumped here.

sticky caliper!

It's probably a sticky caliper get it checked out...This happens when the caliper won't release after it's been applied.

Yeah, what he said^^^ And if it sticks bad enough, that smoke turns to red hot rotors! Visible in the day time. Get it looked at. Brian
