      I know most people are gonna say the cat but I don't have one. My interior smells like one of those nasty farts. The ones that smell like a combination of brocoli cheddar and eggs. I've loaded up on tree air fresheners and the smell seems to be taking the fresh smell right out of the air fresheners.

      Has anyone else had this problem?

      Clean your interior, then on a nice windy day park with all the doors open so the wind carries the smell out

      Like sulfur? Have you tried Febreze, that stuff works pretty good. I left some food in the car, right before I left for a 3 week vacation. Came back and the smell was horrible.

      Took a couple days and several applications of febreze, but eventually the odor went away.

      I had a similar problem in my Honda on a trip with my kids.
      Thought it was related to to much fast food
      and roadside diners while traveling.
      Smell went away once we got to Canada
      turned out it was just New Jersey.....

      do you have any water leaking into the car where it would sit and puddle up and cause your carpets to get a musty smell? check in your spare tire well to see if there is any standing water...

      I forgot to clean some chocolate milk i spilled on my floor mat once, or I didn't clean it good enough, 6 weeks later it started smelling like farts.
      Yes, I'm back in Norway. No I don't have time to go to the junkyard and find red 20th seatbelts or other rare **** and send it across the Atlantic ocean to you.

      Fat chicks smell like tuna burritos. EVERYBODY knows that!

      I seriously would check the charging system. If the battery overcharges it will release sulfuric acid. And sulfur smells.
