Agreed most of the smell is more than the seats but what got me was how the smell penetrated the back of my clothing.
It's already getting better just leaving the sunroof open is helping when parked.
Regardless I love my OB and I'll suck it up because I count on keeping this gem for many years.
I have a freakish heighten sense of smell.Our sense of smell is quite amazing, we can detect a few parts per billion concentration (or lack of concentration). If you are in a room 75 ft by 25 ft by 14 ft high, full of white ping pong balls, and one ball is red, your sense of smell will detect it.
Wait, so that means my carefully thought out plan of getting cloth seats didn't save me from the deadly new car smell after all?LOL, the “new car” smell is hardly leather. It’s chemical fumes from plastics, adhesives, foam and glue so take a good whiff.
Many of the posts on this forum are like no other auto enthusiast forum I have ever been on. 🙄
Guess I'm weird too. I love that new car smell. I wish you could duplicate it (other than buying new).
