Unhappy Wagaon R Duo Eyes burning

HI guys,
I recently took delivery of a brand new Wagon R Duo ,It was a very wise and sensible descison cause i almost fell for the palio stile ,thanks to some guys here for guiding me.
anyways The car is great ,there one slight prob everytime i.e in the morning when i get into my car my eyes start burning and watering and the same when i finsh my office around 7.30 and get in the car ,some guys tell its beacuse its brand new there will be some liquid applied on the dash box for its shine and the plastic covers from the seats get heated up causes this eyes irration .
My only fear is its not gas leakage

Plz guys if u had experince ths same prob plz reply any suggestion also welcome.

Wise decision...Wagon R is an excellent car..Congrats....

Gas leakage inside the car??.....I dont think so.... You must be allergic to the dasboard polish...Or the "new car smell"....

First of all congrats on your new car.
I would suggest the followings:-
Goto doctor for eye checkup, they are very sensitive and important part of your body, so do not take any chance.
Do you also smell of gas in the car, if yes, get it checked
If above 2 cases are not, then wait for sometime for you to get used to of the new car

Very good decision. Open all the four doors for a few minutes when you keep your car parked for long time. I do the same, though I do not get any allergy. I would let the fresh air come in to the car. See if this solves the problem.

Its not the LPG. It has a characteristic smell to it. Its probably the new car smell or it could be a car freshner (if you are using one).

same thing happened with my swift also after it returned after service....it was because of the liquid silicon solution they apply on the dash to make it look glossy........when the car is parked in a hot environment the silicon evaporates thus causing tears in eyes....

Try to clean dashboard with water and cloth, than put the car under sunlight with all glass and doors open for 1-2 hours.

Me thinks it's due to weakness of the eyes. Also, after office (using a computer presumably), this is quite evident.

Try letting in fresh air as suggested and then sit in the car. And yea, when only the blower is on (hot air) might cause the irritation again as the eyes need to keep cool. Try it, happened with me too for a long time till I discovered what's wrong!
