Ok its been 3 weeks since i bought my car, i have opened the coin holder 3 times to put change in, here is what i found.

#1 the first time i added change to it, there wasa foul smell of rubber or tar.

#2 a week later same thing, only this is 10X worse, i thought ok ok this is my first brand new car and maybe all of my other cars would have had these problems if i bought them new.

#3 Last night i opened that holder up and it stunk up the whole car, so i put all the change in a zip loc and closed it, today i opened the bag and the change doesn't stink at all.

So its the COIN HOLDER, WTF DO I DO???? GO TO LEXUS AND SAY MY COIN HOLDER STINKS LIKE SH!T, HELP ME OUT??? WTF THIS IS SICK!!

Anyone else have this problem?

Seriously though, I have a theory on the smell...
To deaden sound in the IS (and all Lexi) they use a "tar paper" on certain body panels that may resonate to kill sound. It's possible that they used some under the coin holder area, and you have an outside air leak around there, or the paper is burning on the exhaust or drive-shaft... I'd take it into the shop NOW, make them fix it, and create a big stink (ha!) so they fix it ASAP and give you free stuff

I agree with Soybomb. The sound deadening stuff like Dynamat is composed of a layer of tar. maybe they overdid it and it is heating up somewhere near the exhaust. Hope it gets solved soon

You know what, you are right. When I went out for lunch today, opened that thing up for the hell of it. Never used it before since I don't smoke, and I put change in the holder on the driver's side dash.

Anyways...opened that puppy up, and there was quite a foul smell! Hmm..very interesting! Wonder how to correct this situation. I know I won't be opening that thing up for a while!
