Free High With Your New Car :D
    #4722001 - 09/27/05 09:41 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)


Chalonda Roberts (Rochester, NY) 09/27/05 -- One of the best things about having a new car could be bad for you. New research finds that much loved "new car" smell is produced by harmful chemicals.

Cheryl Gardner has just purchased a new Nissan Pathfinder. She said the smell that tells her she's driving a new car just doesn't last long enough.

"I love it. It actually stays in the vehicle for a couple of months," she said.

According to a recent study, that pleasurable scent has been linked to harmful chemicals--volatile organic compound or VOC--which releases chemicals from glues, paints, and vinyl.

The smell inside the cabin of the car can trigger headaches, sore throats, and drowsiness. Japanese manufacturers have been the first to respond by reducing the chemical levels within government guidelines.

Scott Pundt of Dorschel Automotive said, "The Japanese are the first in air filtration systems in their cars right now. Lexus had very extensive air filtration system, it has to be changed every 12 months, but filters are in the cabin of the vehicle. They've been ahead of the curve."

Japan's top five car makers have already rolled out cars with lower the VOC levels. Gardner thinks that's great as long as they don't completely get rid of the scent that represents pride and satisfaction for so many consumers as they drive off the lot.

A group that represents US automakers says it does not follow the issue of volatile organic compounds. The EPA has no stance on the issue either.

I like cars that smell after i take a trip down the backroads. Nothin like a smokeout to freshen your car.
