    When I start up my Charger I swear I feel like she has been started up in the middle of a Hog Farm!! What can I do to rid my Charger from the terrible smell that is blowing from the A/C. I get nervous when people walk up to my car in fear that they can smell the ordor from my cabin! YUCK!

    Hog Farmer NOT!
