Then definitely have it checked out by the dealer. Remember that there were only a couple instances out of 43,000 that detonated. Odds are in your favor that there will never be a problem, but the law of averages still exists. Yours may have an issue that relates to the system but does not fully represent the entirety of the recall picture as FCA/Stelantis and the NHTSA see it. I'd get confirmation that not only the recall was performed completely, but also a dump test reassuring that there is no further damage. Maybe venture to a different dealership to get a second set of eyes on your beauty. If you're smelling the clutch under normal driving conditions, that ain't no good. "Smoke costs money." - Jim Rowntree.My vehicle was manufactured in Sep 2020. The first clutch recall was supposedly checked before they delivered the vehicle.
I drive down the highway with my left foot resting on the floor nowhere near the clutch. I am definitely not riding the clutch pedal.
My other quirk is most of the time I drive bare footed. I would definitely know if my foot was touching the pedal.
Keep on bare footin' it! I envy you. I've done way too much construction to even consider the thought of going outside without a thick sole. Plus, AZ tends to bite exposed feet.
