Defective Parts Listing

yo gang!
Feel free to add!
Why did I leave ANCO brand? WHY???? WHY??? lol
because the locals (within 20 miles) don't carry it anymore and I got lazed out...
NAPA Storm Vision WS Blade Review; "...; made in China. At $1.00, I bit and got bitten back BADLY. yeah.. It did not hook onto to the arm's Hook-slot CONNECTOR because it is too Wide (see Review below by DVE); this is why NAPA is selling 3 blades w/refill for a price cheaper than a Texas Made Trico brand REFILL..."

Here is a neat blade/refill Review (in a Saab, but relevant)
Source: by DVE37 at http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2363586/9

ANCO...refills... not even close now. They used to fit perfectly... now it's more garbage from China. Adv Auto Parts Manager said none of the Chinese crap fits and walked over and gave me the Rain X Blades for free because it was snowing and he was p***ed because he saw me outside trying to get the ANCOs on.
===============

Ignition Cylinder Made in China Does Not Fit; bought @ AZ and Kragenby redneckcad

=======
----------
Non-Bronco:
wheel bearings for a JD RX 75 riding mower that are made in China and do NOT fit or come close to the specs. Local JD dealer pulled em off after we danced around for a week 3 yrs ago. The JD Store owner pulled out 23 wheel bearings; those made in China were off so much that they couldn't be pressed on the shaft... a few older bearings by Fafnir were right on Specs; oh yeah the Chinese forgot to add the zerk .. as for tires...LOL!...a pal wrote "the tires were actually about one inch narrower than a Carlisle tire with same tread and specs. The tires didnt even have a name on them, just "China" ..."

I've always been wondering, miesk, your posts are always formatted the same. Are you a computer? An android? Or some other form of artificial intelligence?

The tailgate motors from autozone have the bolt holes 1/8 off so they don't fit. I went to 3 stores and all of them have this new plastic body.

Duralast lifetime brake pads. They wear out in 5000 -7000 miles. Becomes a pain to change them out. They are cheap ($30), bot not worth the hassle to ahve to go through a brake job every 3-4 months

HELLO!

yo,

Fake parts reportedly cost Ford $1BFigure detailed for U.S. Chamber study the first time an automaker has put a price tag on burgeoning problem.
January 22 2007: 8:35 AM EST


NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Counterfeit auto parts are costing Ford Motor Co. $1 billion a year, according to a published report.

The Detroit News said that Ford (Charts) will report that figure Wednesday as part of a U.S. Chamber of Commerce study on the problem of counterfeit goods for U.S. businesses. The paper says that it is the first time an automaker has released a cost estimate for the extent of the problem.

Counterfeits get more realistic
The paper also reports that counterfeit auto parts have become a $12 billion problem worldwide, with $3 billion in phony auto parts sales in the United States.

The paper says Ford not only loses money on sales of legitimate parts, but counterfeit parts also cost the company money through warranty repairs when it has to replace faulty parts that make it onto their vehicles.

"That ($1 billion) figure is probably light," Joe Wiegand, Ford's global brand protection manager, told the paper.

The News reports that the Chamber of Commerce study will also look at counterfeiting problems for office equipment maker Xerox (Charts), drugmaker Merck (Charts), privately held athletic shoe maker New Balance and Bendix, an auto supplier.

Ford competitor General Motors (Charts) did not put a cost estimate on the extent of the problem for that company. The paper reports that GM has seized more than $250 million in counterfeit auto parts in the past two decades, shutting down hundreds of counterfeiting operations.

Good stuff guys! thanks

How do I know if a part is counterfeit?

Unfortunately, our high quality breeds a lot of imitation. Every Ford Part is stamped with the Blue Oval or Motorcraft® brand so that you know it’s authentic. If a part you received does not have one of those stamps, then it’s not a Ford Part.

Back to top

What do I do if I suspect I have a counterfeit part?

Ford Motor Company takes the reputation and legality of its parts very seriously. If you suspect you've received a fake Ford Part – one in Genuine Parts or Motorcraft® packaging that is not stamped with the Blue Oval or Motorcraft® brand – we’d greatly appreciate knowing about it. Information will be reviewed and handled discreetly and professionally by a trained Ford Motor Company representative. Visit fordbrandprotection.com for more information.

That's because they make different sizes and you got the wrong ones.
