I smell exhaust within the cabin when at idle. No smell while vehicle is moving. Also, the smell at idle does not occur 100% of the time, but it seems to be getting more and more common.

Do you
have the same problem?

Is the engine noisy? Does it have an exhaust leak or does it smell like rotten eggs?

The engine sounds normal, not noisy. It does not smell like rotten eggs. It smells like the exhaust. Could there be an exhaust leak under the hood that is finding its way into the cabin?
