You might try revving the engine with the car parked in the driveway with the hood open to determine the source of the smell. You will then know if the car has to be moving or not.

The information posted above stating that the transmission was changed for MY '06 is WRONG (for US market cars).

Yes, you can request the printed Owner's Manual. It will not be delivered with the leather cover (I think), but the manual itself is free.
You can also download the PDFs of each chapter.
