Ive read some complaints about smell but those are about a chemical smell. What I am dealing with almost seems like food is rotting in the car. First, I have not allowed any food in the car. Second, I search since I dont entirely trust my kids not to sneak something in. Finally, I also checked the carpets in the footwells to make sure something wasnt leaking and causing things to get wet and smell. All came back negative. Has anyone dealt with a rotting smell? It smacks you when you first get into the car.
