GMC Acadia AC Smell

#1

The air out of the AC in our 2007 Acadia smells like dirty feet for the first 5 minutues or so of AC operation. Has done this since day one. Anyone else heard of similar issue with an Acadia?

The air is supposed to smell pure and sweet. I believe you have mold or mildew growing in the vent system. Some folks treat this issue themselves with Lysol spray, but this is a warranty issue. Let the dealer handle it. He will also unclog any clogged vents.


#3

Agreed. Let the dealer handle it under warranty.

The first things to do are check the drain and make sure you are leaving the HVAC system in the correct attitude when you park the car – anything but off or recirculate.
