At first, it might seem like fake car parts are a relatively small problem. They get your vehicle running, and you save a significant amount of money. Look beyond price, however, and you will find that counterfeit parts are an incredibly poor deal.
First, they never last long; you are lucky if any fake car parts you buy last for more than a few weeks. Sooner or later, you will have to replace them again, perhaps after they have caused other mechanical problems for your vehicle. It’s not uncommon to spend far more than what you would have if you had just bought genuine components in the first place.
\More importantly, they can also be life threatening. It’s not a problem if you get a fake windshield wiper, but brake pads and suspension components are lethal if they do not measure up to the standards. Using counterfeit parts puts you, your family members, and other motorists at serious risk of accidents on the road.
The problem is many drivers don’t even intentionally purchase fakes. Shopping in unknown stores without doing your research can easily land you with one. These parts are often so well disguised that buyers don’t even notice that they are not genuine until something goes wrong. Not only did the seller cheat you out of your hard earned money, they intentionally put your life at risk.
So what can you do to avoid this from happening? There is only one real answer, and that is to shop somewhere you know you can trust. When you buy from a reputable wrecker or dealer, you have the peace of mind knowing that you are getting something that will not fail you on the road, or cause expensive repairs later on.
