Have you checked the cabin air filter to see if there'* something dead (seriously) in there? You can also put in a new filter and put a few drops of 'nilodor' on it to freshen up the vents.
I've heard of some plastic resins that will give off gasses similar to urine smell. We ran into that with one of our trains. None of the motormen would drive it after a while because of that stench. Turned out it was a manufacturing flaw in the resin mix. Only that was about a 125,000.00 part.
Good luck. If that doesn't solve the problem, take the car back and INSIST on a replacement.
