Mice in interior of 2014 Santa Fe XL

Asked by Jul 28, 2016 at 03:07 PM about the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

This last week has been horrible, trying to get the
mice out of our car. I first noticed the droppings on
my son's car seat, further investigation  I found a
nest under the 3rd row seat.
I've checked my cabin filter and there is no sign of
mice activity.
Is there somewhere else they could be getting in?
Sometimes when our hatch closes it doesn't seem
to completely close, could they get in there?

So far I've killed 5 mice, couple days ago i gave the
car a good clean and just now I've found more
poop. We're parking the car in the open and not in
the carport anymore. I'm at a loss and completely
disgusted with this. Please help, where are they
getting in?!

Mice can slip through the smallest cracks or holes, get the hatch looked at, sounds like it needs an adjustment at the striker end.

Try putting moth balls inside of the vehicle. You can make "bags" from cheesecloth to put the moth balls in. Mice hate the smell of moth balls. You can also spray the interior with a product called "Bitter Apple". It's actually a dog repellent. They should leave once you put either product in the vehicle. HTH. -Jim
