Dodge Charger Problem
Average Mileage: 46,803 mi (11,140 mi - 115,000 mi)
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!

Have a "moldy" odor from the HVAC vents. Took the car to the dealer who used some sort of disinfectant spray ... charged me $85 ... took care of the problem for about a month ... odor is back. I have had limited success with Lysol sprayed into the air intake (take the filter out first). I understand that the problem may come from a blocked drainage hose in the air box ... which I can (yet) find.

my car has the same problem it smells moldy i actually ha
d my ex ask me if i had a cat in my car becouse it has a faul odor.. i guesd i need to go check that out.
After the vehicle sits in the hot sun all day, when you go out to start it and the a/c is on its smells like a dead camel in the car. It is very embarasing if you have someone riding with you, not to mention if you have just eaten you feel like you are going to loose your lunch. To this day it still has not been fixed. We have had the car in the dealer several times and this is the first I have heard about Dodge issuing a cleaner / disinfectant to coat the evaporator to inhibit bacterial growth.

same deal. Upon starting my car for about 10 seconds this nasty moldy, musty smell blows out my A/C, then it subsides. Have taken it back to the dealer twice for cleaning in the past month. Now I will do some investigative work myself to solve this issue. I love this car! this is my only issue with it since I bought it a month ago.
