I continually noticed that the air vents express a very smelly odor. Whether it is the air conditioner or the heater- makes no difference. Went to the dealer and they said it was the air conditioner residue and to run my fan on vent to get rid of the moisture buildup. I have done this for a couple weeks now and they still smell like mold and mildew- I have only had this car for 60 days and can't get rid of the smell. I have allergies and this is a real problem for me. I have had many cars over the years and never experienced this every happening with the air condition in a vehicle. Have there been any complaints of this problem"is there warranty coverage for this or do I need to go back to the dealership and lodge a complaint to get rid of the car"

About the cooling system of the engine, how I can follow up the engine temp. Without temp.gauge this bad design, it should wait until the engine close to burning until the alarm indicator displayed. So, we need solution from the owner about this problem. Thanks,

The contact owns a 2010 Hyundai Accent. The contact stated that the vehicle was taken to the dealer numerous times for the ignition, battery and problems with stalling. The dealer performed a diagnostic that located the failures at the battery cable, the ignition wiring system and the front suspension was corroded. In addition, the engine oil container and starter motor connector was also corroded. The dealer replaced the battery cable and several other unknown parts but the failure was not corrected and the vehicle continued to stall. The vehicle was not further repaired. The failure mileage was 1,200 and the current mileage was 3,000. Kmj
