Smelling exhaust while in traffic

Are you sure is exhaust emission or a fuel smell? If is others Exhaust emission,and is coming in the cabin possible you might have ventilators not working properly,or the doors under the dashboard are kept slight open allowing the outside smell or getting inside the cabin. On the dashboard there is a circulation air button,press it to work. What that button does? Is blocking the outside air coming in and the air you are using iis the inside cabin air only. Use that button for a day and see whether you have any improvement. If so you have to go back to the dealer and explain. Surely they will help you.

I just bought a used 2004 Saturn Vue, when getting home (after an hour drive) I hear a really loud clinking sound about 3 seconds apart coming from the middle of underneath my car. I bought it as is......

It sounds like it was just the exhaust "pinging".
Could be bad gas or a bad catalytic convertor if your exhaust smells bad. Try better fuel - not necessarily higher octane, but something like Shell or BP for a while and see what happens.
