Anthony Succi's car may smell nice, but it has a big ugly hole in its dashboard. He claims in a federal class action lawsuit that the Glade air freshener he attached to his air vent is to blame.
According to Succi's suit, he bought the air freshener in September and clipped it onto his air vent, just as the instructions indicated. Next thing he knew, oil and other unidentified substances had leaked out and burned a hole in his dash below the vent.
Succi claims that Kraco Enterprises and S.C. Johnson & Son, which make the Glade air fresheners, are aware of the problem but have concealed it from the public and refused to reimburse customers, Courthouse News Service reported.
The Glade air freshener is no longer on the company's website, but it is still being sold at some online sites.
Succi is being represented by attorney Richard McCune with McCune Wright in Redlands, Calif.
