    Normally I wouldn't buy a car from a smoker but it was a killer deal. My 92 vx smells like smoke. It's been about a month and I have sprayed it with Febreeze Auto air cleaner and put in a brand new air spencer. I keep airing it out when it's warm and respraying it but it isn't working.

    what should I do?

    Pull the seats and shampoo the carpet, then shampoo the seats while they're out+vacuum.
    Scrub the rest of the plastics with a damp cloth and use alcohol+newspaper on the glass inside.

    use some febreeze carpet deodorizer. It works a lot better than the auto air cleaner. cleaning the carpet is a good idea. good lucky with that.

    It's hopeless. You must sell me the car cheap.
