New 2019 ex owner. 500 miles and have antifreeze smell coming from vents. I used to be a mechanic and know this is a potential heater core issue . Anyone else have this issue? I don’t have any fuel smell issue so far.

Does it happen after you wash the windshield? Had one car where the windshield washer fluid got ingested into the HVAC.

No I don’t think so. Just after car runs for 15 min or so. I don’t smell it when I first start car. I know it is a different smell than the “ new car plasticy smell ” that the Honda’s have. Just hoping this is not OD related. The dealer told me all of his 19’s had the factory fix done before being shipped

Take a ride with a tech when the smell is there, not typical. Could even be some pre-delivery cleaning or prep solution they used and it appears when the car gets warmed up. Did you check the coolant reserve tank? The w/s washer tank? Might be a hose connection loose there.

They haven't been here for nearly two years. Might be worth starting a conversation with them directly.
