Question about 2008 Scion Xb
It's probably caused by water leakage somewhere. Carefully check the carpeting for any dampness. The padding under the carpet may be wet, and this would be difficult to detect, and dry out. I have a car that developed a leak at the firewall, resulting in a terrible disgusting odor. I had to pull the carpet back to reveal the area that was soaked with water (the padding under the carpet is like a sponge). After repairing the leak, it took some time to dry out the padding. I used a lot of baking soda to help absorb the odor. Dust with baking soda heavily, leave overnight and vacuum it up, repeat many times. Since this is a new car though, the dealer needs to correct this by pulling out the carpet to see where the problem is. It could also be caused by a plugged (pinched or improperly installed) drain tube from the a/c system. This is a shame, because the Scion is a great car with an excellent customer satisfaction rating. Let me know how you make out, or if I can be of any help.
