Default NEW Swift Petrol Burning Smell

Hey guys i know that this has been discussed.
A friend's girlfriend just bought the swift petrol ZXi , i dont know why , Fabia all the way for "normal comfort seeking drivers" especially women !

He nor she drive hard or fast at all , but when my buddy came over late last night he asked me if i smelled a burning smell in my swift when i got it - a big NO ! in my case

told him to complain to the dealer ASAP
What is it her clutch ? Thought they ironed out their issues !
disgusting right?

Common issue and Maruti doesn't have a solution for it? Well, in the Ikon I faced a similar issue, and that was only at high rpms on highways. It was solved by replacing the fuel cannister pipe. Does Swift have this? Possible to replace it and check if it dissapears?
