Are there aftermarket Armada filters that use charcoal as the medium?
The paper filters may catch dust, but they are terrible at eliminating exhaust smells, and my Armada seems to suck in more exhaust than any car I've ever owned.
My Benz uses charcoal filters and I could be behind a diesel truck towing a vat of roofing tar and I wouldn't smell it.

Do you use recycle (push fan speed control dial in the center until light comes on or select Max A/C with the air flow dial)?

I use mine most of the time in traffic and find it cuts out more bad smells than any car I have every had.

Maybe you have an exhaust leak. Have the dealer check it out. I can barely smell garlic and skunks so I wouldn't know. :teeth:

I have the same problem, and recirculate does not seem to work.

try modifying the filter A charcoal filter is easy to find

Go to an HVAC supply store and purchase an activated charcoal filter, and then just cut it to size. But you dont want to freeze up the compressor. So make sure that the airflow is as close to the original as possible. Duct tape would work great for this application.

It's worth a try.
