the inside of your car will smell like exhaust if you have C.F (cabin filter) in you car and it has not been changed recently This may sound dumb, but some people may miss it. If you have a car in front of you that smells bad, or are in a smelly environment, and you don't have the recycle air button on, "fresh air" will enter the car.
