If you are unsatisfied with the dealers’ diagnosis, I would recommend getting a second opinion from another dealer.

something is currently wrong with my 09 nox too. After a 5 hour road trip and a last stop at a local gas station the heater vents were producing a strong smell of something burning. Unable to locate on my own will take to the dealer this week and let u know.
Ha funny side story, i bought this vehicle brand new because i was tired of repairing my old 05 impala and now ive been to the stop twice as much as my impala lol

Could be a small coolant leak with the engine heat evaporating the coolant making it unnoticeable. Even if under the hood the smell would migrate into the cab collected by the air circulation system. if under the hood it should be less noticeable, maybe nonexistent if you close off the fresh air intake on the HVAC.

I have an almost new 2010 Equinox and just experianced a heater core failure. Was getting strong odor and fogged windsheild. Dealer just replaced but there must be fluid left in vents in dash. Taking vehicle back in to have them recheck for more fluids left in dash area, etc. Very depressing since we really love the car and still getting average 26.2 MPG!!
