Happy New Year everyone!

Has anyone else noticed or heard of an odd smell coming from the vents when the heater is on to warm up the interior?

I've tried the A/C several times, and I can't notice any off smells at all. It's only the heater that has a somewhat peculiar smell. It's pretty strong.

BTW, this is a 2003 and I've had the car for about 6 weeks. Should I handle this as:
a. something that will naturally "burn off" in time
b. just the way it is. deal.
c. have the dealer take a peek.

?

I thought now that its cold enough to use heaters most everywhere, someone might have noticed something similar.

That's just the fur burning off the gremlins that operate the vent flaps.:eek: ;)

I think that's pretty common. I remember smelling a "hot" smell when using the heat when my car was new. It went away pretty quick. If it persists, have the dealer check it out.
