Everyone drives a used car!
Some people buy a new car. Some people buy a used car. If you buy a new car you pay more than if you buy the same car used. But when you buy it, it becomes a used car the instant that paperwork is signed.
That new car smell is just the volatile plasticizers from the interior polymers hitting your nose. Yes, that nice smell (probably poisonous) – is only an impurity from the manufacturing process.
Oh, wait. I looked it up for you. That smell is indeed toxic: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-504763_162-57378591-10391704/new-car-smell-is-toxic-study-says-which-cars-are-worst/ . The research found that more than 275 chemicals were airborne in a new car. The health risks were linked to problems with the liver, thyroid, testes, ovaries, kidneys, and blood.
Honestly, new cars should be sold at a discount since they are swimming in a toxic cloud for any unlucky passengers or driver. Ironically, people are willing to pay extra to have the opportunity to deeply inhale this cloud.
Luckily, the Independent Penguin always seeks a good used car value if he needs a car.
