Anti-Freeze Smell

I have a G80 Sport....I have noticed after I drive a while, half hour or 2 hours, and park with engine running I open the a door and I can smell is what smells like anti-freeze. I had the dealer look into this and cannot find any leaking. The temp. gauge just under half mark. Dealer said it is from the turbos. I cant figure out how they would smell like that when you are just sitting still Idling. I have set for 1 minute and 10 minutes and get the same result. Anybody else smell this?

I've got a 2018 G80 Sport...I've never smelled anti-freeze or anything unusual in any situation, including the scenario you mention.

Haven not seen this mentioned before, but if your car has already been checked for leaks, I would start next with the heater core. If there is some kind of crack in it you will be able to smell the antifreeze from inside the car.

Anti-Freeze Smell

You cant smell it inside only when you open the door.

You might want to have an independent shop that specializes in Hyundai/Genesis products to look it over.
Dealer tech's are trained to just replace parts and go by the book. Independent shops rely a bit more on technical knowledge and thus could look into it further.
