Just curious where did you take the survey ?
Sounds like you need to do the CAF (Cabin Air Filter) install to keep the dust out. Plenty of how to threads can be found on the forum. Its both cheap and easy to do. May solve your problem.

Default Smell of death from Vents

just bought my truck. Its brand new with 340miles on it and the vents smell like something died in it. I traced it to the coolant reservoir. Then I opened my radiator cap. Be prepared to puke.

The smell is the coolant. I am going to bring my truck back it to see if the dealership can do something. Well let you know how it turns out.

Maybe heater core is leaking? Or the fittings, if your getting same smell from the coolant tank.

Happening to anyone else? I live in a very dry climate (El Paso Texas) wonder if this has anything to do with it. The truck is super clean, never smoke in it or leave anything wet in it. so i dont know.

Its driving me nuts! lol
I live in Las Cruces so I know what you mean about the dust. I also bought a 2012 this year but I have no bad smell. I did install the cabin air filter mod and it really makes a difference. No dust accumulating on the horizontal surfaces inside the truck. I am sure glad I did it.
