    The Hyundai Palisade Literally Stinks: Owners

    The Hyundai Palisade is so popular the automaker is running its production plant at full capacity to keep up with demand. But that may soon change, as many owners have taken to forum pages to report odors of “smelly socks” and even garlic.

    The smells have been so bad, one forum member claimed that they have to crack the SUV’s windows every time they park it in the garage to keep it bearable when they go to leave again. That’s not a great, uh, smell for your up-market family seven-seater (though we can’t rule out if it’s just smelly kids in these cars, yet).

    As pointed out by AutoBlog, the editorial team over at Cars.com also experience foul smells with their Palisade test vehicle:

    There’s an occasional wretched smell coming from the beige interior of the 2020 Hyundai Palisade Limited we bought in December 2019 that might just be the interior itself. To those of us who have gotten the more severe attack on our nostrils (and it hasn’t been everyone), it’s a sharp chemical odor with a dash of something organic like garlic or rotten produce, and it started at the arrival of 90-degree days in the Chicago area, where Cars.com is headquartered.

    A Hyundai spokesperson reported to The Drive that it was now aware of the potential issue and investigating a remedy:

    “We are aware of the concern and are currently in the midst of the investigation, which includes identifying and validating a fix.” Hyundai said in a statement to The Drive. “Once a repair method is confirmed effective a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) will be released to provide direction to our dealer body on how to resolve the concern.”

    perhaps an adhesive used is emitting the un-desireable odor?
