The correct answer would be no.

I would say yes if it was between any pre-turbo joints.

My car is well, it's like 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag...

No. Put copper gasket sealer on the joint for an easy fix. <5$

That can be annoying though. Not to mention if you have to sit and wait for a really really long train youll be feelin a little dizzy.

I wouldnt think it would get into the cabin. Maybe if it was a big leak. It shoudl change the sound of your exaust though.

Sure it does. Where does your shifter go?

I can attest to an exhaust leak comming into the cabin... I had one and whenever I would sit in traffic I would get a headache and get really really tired until I opened the windows and stuck my head out and/or got moving again. After seeing something on CO2 poisoning on TV it dawned on me and I looked under my car... sure enough I had a leak in one of my gaskets...
