    As long as the walls of the Jeep don't start mashing together... heh

    Wonder where the smell is coming from? Outgassing? No other description like windshield fogging, just a smell that clings to your person! Yikes

    Donna was too kind. The smell is a horrid plastic chemical reek. Outgassing for sure. I'd prefer the stench of a garbage masher in the dentention area. Or a Wookie. Or the inside of a Tauntaun.

    Oddly, a friend of mine bought a new Trailhawk soon after we got our Limited. His doesn't smell much at all. I need to do a side-by-side sniff test someday and examine the trim and seat differences more carefully.

    Perhaps there is a difference of the amount of the odorous material used in the two different beasts!
