"Exhaust" smell inside of the vehicle...

Does anyone notice an exhaust type smell inside of their vehicle upon startup? It lasts for several minutes and finally seems to dissipate...either that or I get used to the smell.
The smell is as though it's running rich. I can not confirm that's it's actually exhaust. I don't hear a leak and my clothes do not seem to retain the smell of rich running exhaust after I exit the vehicle....like clothes tend to do when permeated with rich running exhaust.

I've noticed a very similar smell in the past but it's only been when I was running the heated/cooled seats, like there was a particular smell being blow out through the venting of the seats. I had always dismissed it.
It's now happening without the heated/cooled seats being activated. I don't have the best nose in the world, but not the worst either. My wife says she doesn't smell it but, I take that assessment with a grain of salt LOL!

Anyone?

We've been having a fuel and/or exhaust smell inside the cabin of our 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport. It happens intermittently but more frequently when the car is sitting still with the engine on.

I do not get an exhaust fume smell, however, I do smell something else (almost like eggs?) ONLY when the re-circulation is turned on. Perhaps this will go away after the car is broken into as it is still new?

Just a follow up on this. This seems to have gone away. I'm really curious to know what it was though...

LR had HSE TD4 (lucky I didn't buy LUX)!! for 2 weeks to get welding done etc.. 5 time back in! They also changed service Mgr on me!!

Obviously they could not replicate the issue!! So NO ISSUE!!! apparently...

It's still there!!

I've resolved to tell everyone I know not to buy!!! Oh btw a new RHS b pillar loose spring like rattle is in the cabin after getting it back. Follow the rattle issue under the rattle thread..

Am getting rid of this car. NEVER AGAIN!!

I also have the same problems on my discovery sport 2016. The rattling sound I have had since I bought it but have not done anything about it. It kind of sounds like it was in the front. In terms of the fume smell it really bothers me. I seems to happen when I have the recirculation button on and when it is off it tends to dissipate. So I have opted not to use the recirculation button because the fume smell kind of give me a headache. I will address it with the dealer when I take it for maintenance.
