I have a 2022 ST that odd giving me headaches and making my clothes smell. Have an appointment with dealer on Monday. Anyone know of this is still an issue? The suv is almost undrivable and I have to change clothes after driving.
Hope it is something simple.

Ford's solution to fix the issue that was plaguing Sheriffs and PDs across the US was to extend the exhaust pipe 2-3 inches, extending past the rear bumper panel and add a slight downturn to catch airflow from under the vehicle. There is still CO detected in the cabin, however, much less. Also, if you are driving, it shouldn't be too bad. The big issue was the officers idling for prolonged periods, and the gas coming in the cabin vents located under the rear quarter panels. Any muffler shop could add a new tip to your exhaust for relatively cheap, maybe $50-150. Maybe find new, more stylish tips that are a little longer.
Hope this helps, but that is my main draw back from getting a new model. Look good and seem to be dependable, passing out while driving aside, jk.

If you even suspect that you might be exposed to excessive CO, stop driving it! Maybe just to the dealer with the windows down.

Any vehicle can have a hole or gap in the undercarriage that lets CO in. If you are especially susceptible (such as have COPD, a smoker, or other anemia/etc disorders), or even if not, you could get a battery operated CO detector to keep in the vehicle.
