Since last month I started getting torturing AC smell as mentioned in other threads. It is design fault or some other issue by Tesla. In 20 years, I have owned 4 other cars and none of them had this kind of issue. My 2006 Pilot AC still blows nice air without any maintenance. Tesla is only 9 months old with only 8500 miles. I park in garage at home and covered garage at work. My kids stopped riding in Tesla and prefer to ride in 13 year old pilot because of this issue. My colleague decided not to buy Tesla after one lunch ride in my Tesla. My friends own Model S and X and they don't have this problem even after 3 year.
Tesla -- Please do something about horrendous stinky AC smell. Tell your engineers to Debug issue and fix problem. I took car to SC and they want $245 to fix this issue which should be covered by warranty. At work I talked to all Tesla 3 owners and everybody going through this issue. It has become lunch topic.
