I'm new to VW, just got a CPO 2015 Passat, 1.8T, auto. It has 25k miles and had it for 2 weeks. I noticed from day one, when I shut off the car after driving, I notice a coolant smell coming from the front of the car. I never notice the smell inside the car with the heater on so that's kind of odd. I checked the hoses and looked around the engine and didn't notice a leak anywhere or under the car. The coolant tank level has remained the same also. I did a search and some had said this is normal and goes away, or it could be the coolant tank releasing pressure that causes the smell or the plastic/rubber connections makes the smell, blah blah the internet has a hundred reasons but most are confusing.

So should I be concerned or wait it out to see if it goes away...
