Ha Ha buy a new one. There are a few new car airfreshners on the market, but I really dont think they give off that new car scent.

I always thought that smell was bad for you--all the toxic fumes from the plastics.

My Civic has leather seats and after 2 years the new smell of leather remains. Oh! Don't let anyone smoke in the car. It gets into the air con.

there is no way to get the origanal smell back. just keep your car clean and try to keep it around for as long as possible. i cannot smell it in my car but when i take people for a ride they say they can smell it. so either it is gone or you just grow acustum to it
