New 2005 SRX V6 AWD. Noticed the material installed on the rear-most (vehicle jack location) cargo hatch cover (inner side) produces a very strong odor remenicent of something "burning". Seems to get worse as that compartment's temperature increases. Not sure what was used to bond the noise dampening material to the hatch lid. Dealer actually agreed (wow:bonkers: ) the odor was overpowering when the lid is open. The vehicle is in my possession only 1 day. Is this a common occurance? Can I expect this situation to improve as material is allowed to "weather" with time? Thanks for your help.
