I am a new Kicks S model owner for 3 months and I love the car. Just concerned with the burning sell when I turn on the heat or defrost in front. Any others experience this?

My Kicks don't have any burning smell, but still have the rubber and plastic new smell.
Could it be coming from outside? There is usually period of burning smell from the engine bay and under new cars, from whatever factory oil might be coating the exhaust system and muffler. My car still have a bit of burning smell outside, after a long driving and parked in the garage; but not inside while driving/moving.

I have a feeling that you are picking up on some of the residue that has yet to burn off from the engine bay. Its usually only a matter of weeks however before these kinds of scents are gone completely.

Often its fumes from the rust proofing which is normal. Over the next 2-3 months from taking delivery of your car and regular driving it should go away.
