REPORT ON SUSPECTED COUNTERFEIT PART/S
When it comes to vehicle maintenance, there is a tendency towards consumers trying to save few Rands in their initial determination. There is nothing wrong with taking your vehicle to an independent workshop as opposed to OEM authorized workshop, and whilst it is tempting to go for cheaper replacement parts during vehicle service, be warned if those counterfeits parts are installed, vehicle performance, reliability and your safety are severely compromised
Be warned that parts displaying a reputable company logo on them may not always be the real thing. These parts termed counterfeit are manufactured by unscrupulous people using inferior products to produce the parts. They also replicate reputable-brand manufacturer identities by reproducing their logo/branding onto their products/packaging.
For peace of mind, always buy parts from MTA members. Once you come across these counterfeit replacement parts, please submit a report right here on the MTA website, alternatively contact firstname.lastname@example.org
