The latest car parts scandal hits Australia. And if it’s happening there, it’s happening here. Today’s story involves not just panel parts (which is bad enough) but safety components like brake parts, wheels and even air-bags. More than 6000 counterfeit car parts branded Ford, Holden & Toyota have been seized by Australian Customs and were manufactured in – you guess it – China.

Just last week we saw the announcement of the global air-bag scandal involving up to 300,000 NZ based cars, now another potential driver Health & Safety disaster. Or is it? Cynics might call the latest announcement PR protectionist spin from the car manufacturers? I think we all know that not all new car parts are actually produced by those brands. Tell us what you think?
CAN YOU TELL THE DIFFERENCE?
