DEADLY Parts Found To Be in AUSTRALIAN Cars

Australian motorists are at risk of potentially fatal car part failures as inferior parts are made available for commercial sale, Holden engineers say.

GM Holden engineers have found and tested "dangerously inferior" car parts that are being commercially sold and used in collision repairs nationwide.

Engineers say the scope of the issue is unknown, but a defect contained in some non-genuine parts can cause car failure.

GM Holden will release findings of their analysis on Wednesday.

The Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries will also make an announcement regarding its campaign to combat the counterfeit parts industry.
