NEW BALTIMORE, MICH.
- A Detroit-area woman is suing an auto dealership, claiming that her new SUV smells bad because it once contained a corpse.
The Detroit News reported Monday that Margarita Salais sued Suburban Ford in Oakland County Circuit Court. The suit claims that the dealership failed to disclose that the car had been stolen three times and once held a body.
The lawsuit says that Suburban Ford told Salais that the bad smell in the 2006 Ford Expedition came from a dead animal. She said that a hazardous-materials company determined that it was a human odor.
A dealership spokesman said that the smell wasn't there when Salais bought the car and that he "would love to get to the bottom of it."
