In an article at CBS this morning, the headline: Auto Dealers, Big 3 Wait For More Details On Counterfeit Air Bags, drew my attention. So did this statement: “”Government investigators believe many of the bags come from China,” an industry official said.”
An additional note: “The counterfeit air bags were manufactured by purchasing genuine auto air bags that were torn down and used to make molds to produce the counterfeit bags. Trademark emblems were purchased through Honda, Toyota, Audi, BMW and other dealerships located in China and affixed to the counterfeit air bags.”
So once again, be wary of cheaper auto parts. Read the article and better safe than sorry. Anytime I can buy American, I do. How about you?
