Michigan Consumers Purchased 2006 Ford Expedition With An "Odorous" History"

A case filed in Michigan against Suburban Ford of Sterling Heights alleges the dealership sold two women an overpriced vehicle that had multiple undisclosed issues including  a rental car history with Avis and the vehicle was reportedly stolen and recovered.

3 months after purchasing a 2006 Ford Expedition, two Michigan women noticed the vehicle began to smell horribly offensive as the outside temperature increased. The Expedition was towed to the dealer where it sat for 3 weeks. At the end of this period, the dealer allegedly informed the consumers that the bad smell could be attributed to the presence of a dead animal and instructed the plaintiff to contact their insurance carrier.

The plaintiffs did indeed contact their insurance carrier State Farm and were informed after investigation by a hazmat inspector hired in by the insurance carrier, that allegedly the odor was not caused by any sort of animal but instead was "human in nature" and thus the claim was denied.

After returning to the dealer with the vehicle history report, Suburban Ford of Sterling Heights allegedly denied knowledge of the Ford Expedition's questionable past history and refused to refund the purchase or cancel the contract.

The plaintiffs in this case seek damages for fraud, breach of implied warranties, breach of faith, violation of Michigan consumer law, and liability/violations under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.
