Love my K5 GT-Line AWD however.....

1. Burning smell when I get out of vehicle... fluid levels look good. Some say it will go away in a few weeks.

2. With the radio off, I accelerate from a dead stop and the motor knocks/clicks when the gas is pushed. After like 35mph it goes away from the road noise but its there.. no performance issues, accelerates fine. Its not loud but annoying.

3. UVO is delayed.. takes a good minute to talk to the car.

4. Android Auto works with Android 10 but disconnects
randomly with Android 11.. Do not have Apple Carplay.

5. Trunk won't open when I stand behind it with my hands full of groceries, probably an option I don't have on my model.

Comments are welcomed :)

I believe the smart trunk is on the LXS trim and above, which means the GT Line should have it. Make sure the doors are locked first though, it won't work with them unlocked. Then just walk up behind the car and it'll beep a few times and the trunk will open.

Ok cool thanx, I just read the car has to be locked for a period of time for it to work

My GT Line has the trunk feature & I've used it once. There's a prefe you have to select on the profile set up somewhere (not sure where off hand)

I've noticed a smell of antifreeze/coolant when I exit the car. No leaks either, but it smells like coolant. I'm still under 2K miles, hopefully the smell goes away.

I smelled what I would describe as hot plastic in mine for the first week or maybe two occasionally (not every ride). Never found any real issue and it has not happened since. Probably worked through it faster than most as this is my commuter car and I am already closing in on 3k miles after only about 7 weeks with it.

Do I need to turn this on and if so how? I have a gtline and can’t find anything for the smart trunk.

Yes, in your steering wheel settings go to doors... arrow down to trunk, turn on... works great.

Have any one with the GT line have issues with the brake fluid light coming on even though it’s full? I have a Gt and a Ex but the issue is with the GT when turning corners.

I have smelled it to when I pull in the garage after a drive it’s definitely antifreeze but I can’t find leak and is not low on fluid
