Has anyone experienced this and do they know of cure? When I get into or out of the car (2018 3008 GT Line) there is a putrid smell. I tracked it down to the rubber gaskets that are the door seals. It's the ones that are fixed to the car body, not the ones on the doors. They smell really bad. I get the whiff as my noses passes close to them. It's especially bad in hot weather.

My wife caught me sniffing the door frames - couldn't detect any weird smell - I wonder if they used some fishy type of backup glue on your rubbers. We're still together even though she keeps giving me funny glances.
