NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Love that new car smell?

Well, Ford wants to get rid of it. 

The automaker has applied for a patent on an odor removal system that will suck out the smell you get when you get a new set of wheels.

According to "Car Advice," that smell is caused by organic compounds given off by leather, plastic and vinyl. And it's also one of the top complaints from new car buyers in China.

To get rid of the smell, Ford plans to park the cars in the sun, roll down the windows and turn on the engine, heater and fan.
