Sometimes when all the windows are up and we're using the ventilation system we get a smell of fuel or exhaust in the interior. More so in city traffic when air isn't flowing fast over the car. We generally drive the car gently.

I suspect the location of the exhaust combined with the shape of the car creates air patterns which might pull exhaust fumes toward the front of the car where the air intake is located. Or, there could be an exhaust leak under the hood.

It's been happening on the last few weeks. The carpets smell fine, so I don't suspect we stepped in fuel and carried it in the car.

Just wanted to see if anyone else has this issue - where it would be a trait of the hatchback or all versions... before I go to the dealer to talk with them about it.
