    mildew almost wet shoe smell when heat turned on. Replaced part in hvac system over all happy with the vehicle. We call it the snow commander. Worried about the cam shaft issue many report. No check engine light yet but it seems MB would be right to recall the vehicle due to such a prevalent issue.
