One of the places you are least likely to look is the rear hatch seal. If 
you are smelling exhaust fumes, there is a good chance they may be coming in 
through the seal, particularly when you have the door windows rolled down. 
There is a low pressure area back there, and the air flow is from the hatch 
forward through the car and out the side windows.

Just a guess.
