Hey guys,

I just bought an 07 Civic EX sedan. I've noticed that my hands smell like smoke after I drive it. I smelled the steering wheel and sure enough, it smells like smoke.

Does anyone have any suggestions for removing this odor?

Thanks
Jeff

It is cigarette smoke. I like the smell of gunpowder! I'm going to try to clean it with some vinegar today.

If its gunpowder, the car may have been in some sort of bump which set the airbag off. The steering wheel airbag compartment coulda been replaced, then sold to you... voila...

Ring the person who you bought the car off asap.
