Dangerous chemicals aren't just on the outside of your car.
New car smell makes me physically ill.
Looks like it is not just you!
oh my god, just thinking about the smell seriously makes me car sick 🤢
yeah, that smell just brings back bad memories of dizziness D:
It brings me back to when I was 8 years old getting into my Grandpa’s new Dodge Ram van in the middle of summer and immediately feeling like I’m going to be sick. Ever since I just can’t stand that smell.
Same, never understood how my parents seemed to like it
New phone/laptop smell too, I’ll bet.
I’d be interested in a study to see if car salespeople have higher rates of cancer than the general population since I’m assuming they spend more time in new cars than anyone else.
I read these are specific designed smells
There must be a specifically designed smell which can be applied, if you buy used from a dealer it also has the “new car” smell.
