I thought it was the mats as well, but I replaced them with the normal carpeted mats this summer and the smell is still there.

I will agree that the smell goes away fairly quickly once you start driving or the AC comes on, it's just that initial smell when you first get in the car after it has been sitting over night or in the heat of the sun. So far I have been pleased with the results from the Chlorine Dioxide bomb I put in mine about 12 days ago. The "pool" smell has subsided and I haven't smelled the pungent garlic smell since.

So I don't drive my car a ton right now since we are at home so much. A few weeks ago, I went to get gas for my mower and got a tiny bit on my WeatherTec floor mat (I wiped it up.) I don't know if it reacted with the floor mat or what, but my interior smells really bad now. It doesn't smell like gas either. It smells a little like the leather seats, but only way worse. It's so hard to describe! Anyone else's interior gone from that "new car smell" to something way worse????? I don't know what to do to get rid of it either.
I have new Palisade and smells like rotten egg. Took the vehicle to the local dealer and they have replaced driverside seatbelt assembly but odor still stays. I have brought back the Palisade for deodorizations

I posted here on the smell about 3 mos ago in my limited with beige napa leather purchased Feb 2020. Later I posted that it was gone after cleaning the mats. But it’s back. Strong musty garlic smell that comes and goes. I can put up with it, but this ain’t right. The kids complain. I asked my local Hyundai dealer about it a few weeks ago (during the free maintenance) and was told some shit about new cars taking time to burn off some of the factory chemicals. Now we have the Palisade CSI- Car Smell Investigation from Cars.com today! Here’s the link

Sound like Hyundai USA is engaged. I was hoping that this was a limited batch of cars. Sounding now like it’s more pervasive.
