2015 with 2000 miles and sometimes I swear I get a whiff of antifreeze when starting the vehicle or just randomly. I see no signs of leaks or coolent loss. Ideas?

The smell similar to antifreeze is the windscreen wash antifreeze it drains into box below windscreen which is also the air intake area for the cars heater.
Check your handbook for heater use and make sure you are not using recycling modes too often.

Do not buy any products from a bakery that smells like antifreeze the smell is there to make people sick if they drink it.
I thought all the mould Killing additives were banned and good House keeping was order of the day.

My Auntie Frieze does bake a good smelling cupcake. But like Jeff says, use your recirculation mode sparingly. Fresh air moving through the car is important for several reasons & will keep odd smells at bay.
