Air conditioner has a musty or mildew smell. There is no cabin air filter in the 2003 and older dodge durango. I have a 4.7 Liter 4X4 with low miles that drives great but the smell is nasty.
If ac was off and only cold air was blown after a/c on then a musty odor was detected. condenser replaced but now is doing it again. Techs state no further action can be taken. Really disappointed in Durango. Wont buy another.
