    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!

    I've got the same old musty smell when just using the ventilation fan. I have to turn on the a/c to get rid of the smell. I have a 2006 Charger with 126,000 miles and never had this problem. I guess I will see what the dealer can do.
