It's not just you, it's your leaking gas tank, which has caused Volvo to recall 100,000 cars from the U.S. market. The company received complaints from 45 850 sedan owners who noticed a gas smell inside their cabins and then discovered leaky tanks. The problem is most likely caused by extreme heat, as the complaints have arrived from 17 of America's hottest (literally) states, although Volvo hasn't heard a peep from peeps in other warm climes like Australia and Thailand. The issue apparently only affects 850 sedans made between 1994 and 1997, and Volvo claims it can easily be corrected by placing a rubber coating over the leak, which itself will melt down  and cause the same thing to happen again in a few months, at which time you will dump the car and get into something Japanese because you heard they were "wicked reliable."
