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