when coming to a stop at a traffic light or stop sign, vehicle will emit a rotten egg (sulphur) smell into the passenger compartment. only happens when air flow is set to 'fresh air' and not to 'recirculate.' i fthe 'recirculate' option is truned on, the smell will dissapate. i feel it is unsafe to have exhaust gases entering the passenger compartment. i have heard others with similar complaints on this matter.

since august 10, 2002, i've leased an acura rsx. in october of 2002, a rotten egg or sulfur smell has been coming from my vehicle both inside and outside of it. it occurs at no certain time or circumstance, just everyday at one time or another. the smell gives me headaches and forces me to roll my window down whether its cold, hot, or rainy outside just to provide me with some relief. the dealership, hendrick acura in charlotte, nc has replaced my catalytic converter twice. both times they assured me i wouldn't smell anything again. however, they were wrong. acura's customer service people tell me its just a normal by-product of the engine and that there's nothing to fix the problem. *nlm
