Odor from heating vents

I'm having the same problem I had with my Chrysler 300M. The heat vents put out a mild odor which smells faintly like burning leaves. It must be due to mold build-up from the warmer weather. Anyone else experience this problem?

Re: Odor from heating vents

Change your cabin air filter. Mine started to smell like a camp fire, changed the filter and it went away.
