Perhaps some unconcious neglect in regards to the exhaust fumes but they usually shoot out behind the car when it is moving, not straight up the back.
    Sorry, but you're wrong Lala, exhaust fumes do not shoot "out the back" when a vehicle is moving. They gather in a rotating cloud that rolls from upwards like a "loop-the-loop" on a rollercoaster. This cloud dissipates only upon de-accelaration or braking, which breaks the air-flow void.

    This situation is created by the design of the vehicle, as the vacuum that creates this "invisi-loop" contributes to the overall economy of the vehicle, and is specifically included in a design concept by the manufacturers.

    Bet the dog would rather be there than left at home alone, and maybe the fumes are too close but in a moving car would they come up to the dog or just blow out behind?

    I agree. I don't think this cage is design is particularly objectionable. I've seen much worse with dogs heads sticking out of cars, moving around in the back of utes, and sitting in front seats with airbags.

    Would you put your child in it?

    If the answer is no, then your dog shouldn't go in it either.
