First Benz, totalled my Acura

Long story short, hello...

Totalled my Acura TSX in Arizona...semi ran us off road.

60 yrs old, have had 24 cars in my life.

Never had a black car (too many horror stories) or a Mercedes Benz.

I broke tradition and purchased a 2008 clk of course

Beautiful car, NO OWNER MANUALS, (on order)

So far so nagging concern...Musty Smell using heater, air conditioner....I mean REALLY musty....

What is it?, was not there on test drive, naturally..

It is very very noticeable to the point I have to take it to the dealer..

Need advise....cabin filter? Heater core?

Hope to have a pleasant ownership once this isue is behind me.

Thanks in advance...
