    I too have a musty odor when the AC is on, never bothered to fix it though. I just don't use the AC.

    Any time the A/C or heat is turned on, a musty smell emits into the cabin. Eventually, the smell subsides but the smell it bothersome and embarrassing nonetheless. I'm unsure if the air is harmful to those in the cabin as this does sound like a mold issue.
