    Odors from A/C or Defrost

    Anyone having the old stale air conditioning odor when running the A/C or defrost? I have 05 Prius with no other issues. Great MPG-52 in summer, 40 in winter. 34000 miles.

    SSBeno, I'm guessing you don't use the AC very much if you're getting such great mileage in summer. Congratulations!

    But for us living where it's hotter than Hades in July, there are a few tricks. After you use the AC/defrost, every single time if you can remember, turn it off and blow the fan only on high. This will dry out the insides and prevent that used-cat-litter scent.

    It's not just hybrids that have the smell--it's anybody who uses AC without blowing it dry once in a while.
