    Exhaust smell in car

    Has anyone noticed an exhaust smell inside their 2008-2010 Wrx? I noticed when i'm parked and idling I can smell it. Car is stock with 7,000 miles on it. Wondering if there is a TSB out on this.

    I checked STIS for you and I couldnt see any current TSB's related to your concern, however I will say this...Sometimes the insulation in the header between the heatshield and the exhaust pipe itself smells a tad..also when they ship the Impreza's from overseas they spray rust inhibitor on the underbody of the vehicle and a tad might get on the exhaust so you might smell a tad of that...thats all I can think of at the moment...Of course it should be still under warranty I would bring it to the dealer if your truly concerned...
