I recently purchased my 2014 model,(from an FCA Dealer) with only 13K mi. When I picked up the car I noticed a strong smell of a vanilla scent. I thought that was what the dealer did to spruce up when I took the car. I found out that another owner somewhere(not near me), also mentioned a vanilla scent in his car. I don't think a brand new model would smell like vanilla, or maybe they do(??). A mechanic from a dealer may know the answer, or do new models really smell like vanilla, or the traditional 'new car smell' ?? thanks

My 17, when I bought it new, didn't smell like vanilla. It smelled like any new car does.

The used car prep guys probably spayed some type of deodorizer in the car maybe to cover up cigarette odor in the car. It should dissipate in time.
