I immediately hit the Frost-button to get some cold air and then after maybe a minute it was gone and clear.

But the thing is, when I put the heater to 28 degrees Celsius (82.4 F) and it couldn't even stand sitting in the car. This hot-garbage smelling air comes rushing out of the vents. WTF is this?

Should I get this checked out? It only happens when I just turn on the vents, no AC or Heater. I'm 100% sure it's not from the outside because I rolled down all windows to clear out the car.

The car in question is a 2009 LCI, only a couple months old.
1. Find your cabin air filter

2. Next to the air filter, to your left, you'll find a hole. spray a TOn of lysol down that hole

3. Spray some lysol into all the vents in your car

4. Turn on your car and run your ac at maximum heat, untill all the lysol smell has lessened.

5. Repeat as needed.
