    Slowhite,
    The car seemed to run fine. Smelled it thru the vents slightly. After leaving the lot and driving on the highway for a bit and then getting on it once there was a strong quick smell of antifreeze, and temp has not exceeded normal. I read thru the break in period and stated idling is not good for a cold engine. But the car had been running for some time before idling so it was not warming up.
    I may call the dealer if I smell it again or if the temp moves up at all.
    I hope I didn't get a lemon...

    I like the ride compared to the Fiesta ST I traded for this.
    I have had a possible issue already though. It was cold last night and I took my brother to class and so we idled in the lot for nearly 2 hours. It started smelling like antifreeze but never got above normal op temp.
    For piece of mind I would take it to the dealer to have it look at, call ahead and reserve a loaner.

    Yeah I agree that it might be a good idea to take it to the dealer to get it looked at.
    If it was me I would probably wait to see if it happened again just because going to dealer can be a pain.
