    moisture nga yan na naiiwan when you turn the a/c off. tama suggest nila na turn off mo muna yung a/c thermostat while leaving the fan running for a minute or two before shutting down the engine. ito din ginagawa ko to make sure na ma drain yung moisture.

    pero if hindi talaga matanggal yung amoy then i suggest pa check mo sa casa yan if bago pa yung car mo. kasi ito yung experience namin sa honda city ng sister-in-law ko. wala pa 1 month yung car pero mabaho yun amoy ng a/c. may pinalitan yung casa sa a/c system then natanggal na yung bad smell.

    there is a mold killer spray available in the market today. i just forgot the brand, but i've seen some at Ace Hardware.
    Lysol ang ginagamit nila sa dealership. Perhaps we have a different formulation here. But it's not a cure-all. May amoy pa rin. I just shut the AC off a couple of miles before I get home

    Are you sure it is not the ionized air because of a very high thermostat setting? Most of my cars have this ionize air smell when the thermostat is set at the coolest position and the fan is set at low speed. What I do is just set the thermostat at a higher temperature level or increase the speed of the fan or both. After about 1 minute, the smell will disappear.

    may ginamit ako spray (with a long tube hose) pero galing sa Korea, I'm not sure if meron mabibili, pero sapalagay ko meron. It made the smell a bit better, nag amoy parang alcohol, neutralized yung bad odor.

    Pero since bago ride mo, its not advisable to use any spray yet, they are right, bring it back sa casa , they might have a better way to deal with it.
