2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0: Wet Dog or Litter Box?
February 01, 2012
The weather's been weird here in SoCal lately. On Saturday, it was 80 degrees. Yesterday, it was in the mid-60s during the day, dropping into the 40s at night. So to get comfy, I had to play around with the temperature settings in the Mustang on the drive home last night.
I don't know what I did (if anything), but the smell of a not-quite-clean litter box began to waft through cabin. A few fiddles with the temp/vent settings seemed to fix it.
But a couple hours later, as my husband and I set off on an errand, he sniffed in distaste. "Smells like a wet dog in here,"he said.
"Litter box,"I replied. (Describing a stink of unknown origin is a little like finding words for a fine wine: The comparisons are all in the nose of the beholder.)
More fiddling with the temperature/vent/fan settings put things right and I didnt smell anything odd this morning. What's your theory on what's up with our Mustank?
