Newbie here, bought a 2003 2.5 petrol recently and got stuck in some snow yesterday. After a few minutes of spinning and rocking I got clear but not before a very nasty burning smell coming from around the front wheels and into the cabin. I was using lock for a while (and did reverse which I have since read is not advised). The car drives fine now, but just took it out for a short ride and the smell is back from the front again, but not as bad.
Any ideas what this is? Did I do some damage I need to have checked?
