I bought a used car once, and before I picked it up, the dealer steam cleaned the whole interior. The next day it smelled like total @$$ inside...whew, nasty!!
The smell was from the carpet and underlay getting and staying wet. It took weeks for the carpet to completely dry and the smell to go away. Worst stink I've ever experienced in a car. I was too embarrassed to take anyone for a ride for the first month.
