Oddly my car still smells "new" even tho it's a '99. I'm guessing it's due to the use of the Mercedes branded interior cleaner/conditioner but I also don't allow eating or smoking inside. I'm thankful it doesn't have the strange mustard smell some 70's sedans tend to get from the era's interior materials or glue.

Mine smells like Old Mercedes, both of mine have smelt the same, I wouldn't say it is the mustard smell though, I know what smell you are speaking of though, any American car prior to 1995 has that smell. I think that mid-90's Volkswagens smell like an airliner.

I have let both of my Mercedes evolve from their new car smell. They have never been smoked in and I would never use an air freshener. Synthetic perfumy scents are offensive in a car and only belong on a woman and then in the most subtle way. My 96 SL has an aged leather smell and my 07 E has mostly a new car smell of leather backed up by a slight plastics and adhesives smell used in manufacturing.
