    Strong exhaust smell on 02 rex

    Hey my wife's 02 rex has real strong exhaust smell when it is cold. Is this somewhat normal or could this be something to worry about?

    I'm fairly new to subarus as I just bought my 05 LGT last year and I bought her 02 WRX about 2 years ago. Before that I never owed a subaru so I not quite sure what is normal for subbies and what is not.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Sorry,

    Seriously though, exhaust or gas? Strong gas smell when cold is very common for '02 - there's a service bulletin for it......

    Its "normal", mine smells like a snowmobile half the time when i start it when its cold out but i'm also catless. You can try to bring it in to get fixed, i am hoping to next winter when i am not over an hour from the nearest dealership.
