How hot is it inside the car? A white car parked in the sun on the day Phoenix reached 118 had an inside temp of 140 after 15 minutes and 170 after 30 minutes.

No one should leave ANYONE in a hot car! The elderly, the young, or your animal family members! I won't even allow Howie to leave ME in the car when he runs into the store. He leaves the car running, the A/C on, and yours truly sitting shotgun. And I can always listen to the radio, too.
