1. Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

Topping the list of the most toxic vehicle of 2011-2012 is the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport with a score of 3.17. If you want to compare just how bad the Outlander Sport is, the least toxic vehicle, the Honda Civic, had a score of just 0.46. So what made the Outlander Sport so bad? Ecology Center researchers found bromine and antimony-based flame retardants in the seat materials, center console, and seat base of the interior. Mitsubishi also used chromium-tested leather on several components and had over 400 parts per million lead in seating materials.

Maybe next time you won’t be so eager to waft in that new car smell. Those fumes can be toxic.

    I’d suggest by far the most toxic car, or rather the car whose drivers and fans are the most toxic, would be the Nissan Skyline GTR … the way they rant, beat their chests and pump their fists, you’d think they invented the wheel!
