We started noticing a musty smell coming from our vents. The smell is only present when the vents are on. It is horrible. We took the van to the dealership where we always have it serviced. They want $110 just to see where the problem is. I am not the only one who has this problem, they need to recall the parts that are causing this problem and fix it. I will never buy dodge again. Way to many problems!!!!!! And they fight tooth and nail not to fix their own poorly engineered vehicles!!!!

Every time we get into the van my husband starts sneezing. He has said for years that the vents blow moldy smells.

Smeely AC/ AC not running correclt and sometimes shuts off. Unfortunately I bought the van used and when I bought it I noticed the bad small (almost thought it had been flooded previously). I trusted the dealership (MISTAKE#1) it was a "certified" preowned car. I call it my certified POS. Oh well. I was told to give it time that the AC needed to run a little from sitting maybe and it wopuld get better. It had several other AC concerns and today I am having to go pick it up from the dealership AGAIN for the 3rd time in 3 months. It hasnt been working right since I bought it but they think they are doing a greta job just charging me the 100 deductibale from the warranty I paid for- thats BS!!! I bought the van with issues and they should correct them withjout charging me! I feel like telling them take their car and shove it

Bought this van used for my husband to use for work. I smelled the smell immediately the day we got into it to test drive it. Now I refuse to let the heat or AC get turned on if I'm in the vehicle. It is disgusting. I'm glad to know that there is info available on what we may be able to do to fix it but this van is already starting to tick me off. This is why I always buy new with good warranties. Ugh.
