Have this terrible smell in my trunk. Did not have it until after rear floor hump carpet was replaced.
Put some odor eater in trunk to no avail.
Dealer has no idea, said it might be tire. Removed spare tire for a few days, no change in smell.
Anyone have a "terrible" smell in their trunk.
I'll bet I'd change the rear floor carpet. at least pull the rear seat bottom, To see if something was under there.
Like you said it wasn't there until rear hump carpet was changed.
A number of years ago and a few cars ago i had a terrible smell in the trunk and it spread to the whole car .I found ( not the dealer ) an apple that had rotted that fell out of our grocery bag and got wedged in a crevice .You might want to check if there is anything dead or rotting every possible place in trunk. If that doesnt work sell the cxar
Hey rackerjack, did you ever figure out what the smell was? I have this exact same problem in my V8 Lux ... just a God awful smell in the trunk. Have done sprays, oder-eaters, everything ... still there.
Cleaned out the carpet mat, actually let that sit outside for a month ... smell is still there.
