Check that nothing died - check the air filters, check below the car. Take it to a professional cleaner and have it cleaned. No polishes, I agree with the gentleman who mentioned it may give cause for trouble. Wash it inside out. But make sure that a small animal or insect hasnt got itself stuck somewhere it cant be seen. Its happened to me, but the smell is really sickening - is it that strong?

Could it be your own smell of sweat?

Too much desi oily spicy food is a known cause for bad odor.

I too have a problem with odor, but in my i10 it happens only when I switch on the ac/blower. That odor is very prominent for the first 5 mins, smells like when the mats are wet.

What can I do.
