Hello! I am an owner of a 2020 Hyundai Palisade Limited, purchased in August. I have the pungent odor problem, still. Dealership said it was "new car smell" and it would go away soon. 8 months now and still as nasty as ever! Dealership still maintains "new car smell". I want to vomit when I open the door! I have NEVER, EVER had a new car that smelled this disgusting. In fact, it smells like someone took garlic juice and sprayed it throughout the vehicle and then heated it up! It is that gross! It makes me have headaches and nausea if I drive over 15 minutes and makes my chest tighten and cannot get a good breath. Does anyone else get ill?

You should send a copy of this posting to the Hyundai customer service. Call their number that is in the manual.

My Limited beige inside.. when I first purchased it had a so called new car smell , different then any other new car but it wasn't bad and not strong. It had a leather smell mixed with something else.. didn't last long..

Ditto, our 2020 Palisade Limited smells bad inside, and we contacted the dealership to see if there's a fix. The dealership said that they never heard of the smell issue, therefore we need for all owners to report. They need to detail and or recall. Such a nice car, but such a rotten smell. There's something wrong with the velvet I bet.

I had a smell from using the windshield washer fluid. Other than that no other odor.

That's pretty much norm. I would think. comes in though the AIr Cond.outside fresh air vent. The AC fresh air vent can be closed. .
