When buying a new car, that new car smell when you first enter the driver’s seat with your keys in your hand seems to sum up the experience as a whole. The smell of a new car is intoxicating, quickly invoking a memory — maybe like your first real job, or a graduation present, or a reward for your retirement. It evokes that golden time of a new car, the time before coffee stains, peanut butter seats and a boot that smells like a gym locker room and dirty running shoes. Whether it’s a new car from the showroom or a new car to you, that fresh scent can set the tone of how you enjoy your new vehicle adding to the excitement of your purchase.
While we can’t guarantee our tips below will get you that new car smell quite like the one on the dealership showroom floor, we can promise a clean, fresh and wonderful smelling car for you to enjoy in your old faithful or to entice the buyers to pay-up for your pre-loved car.
