Khue Lee said he recently bought this Subaru from a Portland dealership. On Thursday police showed up and said it had been reported stolen in Idaho.
PORTLAND, Ore. – When Khue Lee went to buy a car it seemed like a typical transaction.

Lee bought the 2007 Subaru Outback from Rustom Nissan of Portland, which is owned by parent company Broadway Toyota. He had been making payments on the car like normal.

Managers at the dealership told Lee they didn’t know the car was reported stolen because of a miscommunication with the auction. They would not discuss with us about why they didn’t know the car was reported stolen.

Lee said he’ll be fine, but believes the dealership could have treated him better.
