Exhaust Fumes

Hello Volt Community,
It has been a while since I posted a question. While I am driving and the generator kicks in (Mountain mode or out of battery) I seem to be smelling exhaust fumes. Has anyone else had this issue? I thought maybe it was from other vehicles, but I put a window down to allow the fumes to escape, close the window, and the fumes come back.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.
In case I had not mentioned it before, I was able to get a new battery pack covered by the 10 year warranty (in CA) thanks to our state regulators at CARB and BAR. They contacted the dealership, the repair was arranged, and I was provided a free loaner while the work was done (about 18 days).

If you just noticed the exhaust fumes once you got your car back, it's likely they didn't fully connect or snug up the exhaust system when they changed your battery pack. If that's the case, take it back, express your concern and have them reinspect your exhaust system.

If it's been some time since the repair, then you still need to have your exhaust system inspected. Maybe loose hardware, or a hole has developed.
