It smells bad

Has a salvage title, burns cng, has dents everywhere, you might need a rear bumper but other than that...............looking for a van is a true adventure.

I wonder what the smell is from? And if you are going to throw away the seats anyway, may not be a bad deal.

LOL.


The first van I test drove was a diesel club wagon. It smelled too. They tried to febreeze it, but it was mildew stinky. Drove OK, but when I got back to the dealer and looked under the van there was oil drips hanging everywhere. I thanked them and left.

Bad smells combined with salvage title makes me suspect its a flood vehicle.

Type the VIN into my search engine, and came up with this (wasn't about to pay $$ to get more info)


Based on the "Secondary Damage" info from the website below (if accurate), I'd personally steer clear.

Steering clear was my plan from the start, I told you it smelled bad, it's local, and I just ran across it on this mornings search.
