    Exact same situation. I used to date a girl who frequently smoked in my car. When we broke up, I had hoped the musty smell would leave with her, but it has not. I don't know what this is.

    We bought this vehicle brand new. We don't smoke or allow anyone else to smoke. We now have a musty smell coming through vents when putting on defogger and air condition.
