Did you ever think the fumes within your car could be emitting toxins and thus affecting your health?
Well HealthyCar.org, a project of the non-profit Ecology Center, finally decided to put the cars to the test. In 2007, HealthyCar.org released the first ever Consumer’s Guide to Toxic Chemicals in cars and child car seats. After some frightening findings, teams of highly trained scientists continue to check and alter car’s chemical levels within vehicle’s interior surfaces.
Good news for the 2008 Chevy Corvette Convertible owners! Just recently, HealthyCar.org completed an overall rating on the vehicle, and deemed it low concern to consumers’ health. The study is based off of numerous chemical findings, which may be embedded within the surface of your cloth seat, the carpet, or even on the surface of your steering wheel. Out of the 11 vehicle surfaces tested, chlorine was the only chemical found among the front seat and headliner surfaces.
Additionally, the vehicle gets a combined 18 miles per gallon: 15 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. With that kind of gas mileage, one simultaneously can save on fuel expense and protect their health.
So the next time you are curious about your vehicle’s toxin level, go to HealthyCar.org! Otherwise, remember, you can’t go wrong with the 2008 Chevy Corvette Convertible.
