Would check the trunk, including the spare tire wheel well - see if there is any odor (from a previous spill, etc.), food, or water in there that may be attracting, or sustaining them.
If they are inside (it sounds like they are), you will need to keep removing them until the colony dies / there are no more queens left to continue the colony.
Ant baits will just attract them, if you can, use a Shop Vac, or go to a local Service Station or Car Wash & use their (coin operated) vacuum to remove them from the vehicle.. Will need to do this until they are gone..
Do this every time you see them, check and vacuum -everywhere- in the vehicle and trunk, including under the floor mats, the spare tire well, etc.
