My wife owns an 02 SER with 52,000km. She bought it brand new and hasn't had any problems yet. The other day I could smell a stong odor of coolant just after she parked it in the garage. I checked all hoses, around the engine, and rad but observe no leaks. I checked the coolant level and everything appears Ok. The temp guage seems fine. Should I be concerned? I know these engines run pretty hot, could this be the case?

I will cheack that. I should mention that I don't smell it in the vehicle, only under the hood and from outside the car.

It's probably leaking internally and coming out of the tail pipe.
In other words, you might have a bad headgasket.
