    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!!!!
