    I AM SHARING MY LETTER TO HONDA WITH ALL USERS HERE:

    After writing you many times but you showed your helplessness to rectify toxic smell from my new Car and at last I took delivery from your workshop. Meanwhile I contacted many persons, who bought the same model of your car recently I was shocked to know that many of the people are facing the same problem.

    Everyone I met said they are very much disturbed with the dead rat smell from the car. Then I happen to meet some car experts and discussed the problem with them. I came to know that the material used in the interiors are sub standard and The "new car smell" is actually the smell of toxic chemicals off-gassing from interior auto parts such as the seating, dashboards and vehicle trim.  Many synthetic materials and plastics are produced with chemical additives that are used to change the engineering. performance of the plastics, thus these plastics may contain plasticizers, stabilizers, flame retardants, aintimicorbials and antioxidants. Due to these additives, many pollutants, including benzene, toluene and xylene, were found in levels exceeding indoor.

    Now we have formed a group who are sufferer and together we are going to protest for this problem by getting your Car tested for such hazardous chemicals used in car interiors and make other people know how you are playing with the health of consumers.

    Mean while please let me know your norms and standard for material used in interiors so that we can get it tested accordingly. Also please give me contact details of the directors with whom we can take the matter.
