I just bought a new GMC sierra and while washing it for the first time today I had a thought and was wondering if there is any logic behind it. If you clean your trucks interior with AC delco vehicle care products (which is what all GM dealerships use I think) would it keep your interior smelling like new? Some cleaning supplies have a distinct smell which is by no means bad but it just doesn't smell like a new car. Does or has anybody ever used AC delco cleaning supplies before? What do yall think?

I haven't but if you do, let me know if you get the new car smell out of it. I once bought a "New Car Smell" air freshner and hung it up on a sunny day. I got out of work and got into my truck and it smell like a fresh pile instead. NEVER tried that again...

That "new smell" is actually a mixture of all of the chemicals that your interior has been through you are smelling. Don't think the interior cleaner will make it smell the same.

There are some places that have products that are very close to that new smell and are safe.

An old used car lot trick is to throw a capful of lacquer thinner under the mat in the trunk. :crazy:

Yeah "that new car smell", even though I too love it, is not good for you. The carpets and cloth and plastics all "off-gas" chemicals into the air.
