Subject: 9-5 Hot Brake Smell


On a recent curvy mountain trip the brakes on my '99 9-5 gave off a VERY STRONG hot burning smell. This is with a manual tran in 60 degree (F) weather. I've made the same trip in a Miata and an Q45 without the smell. Is this typical for 9-5's? Is it a mechanical problem? Should I be worried?
