Counterfeit automotive parts are on the U.S. market in record numbers. On the left is a genuine Bendix MV-3 dash valve, used for applying and releasing the parking brakes on commercial trucks. On the right is a counterfeit version, like the one that failed a driver from Rhett Butler Trucking in Sanford, N.C., prematurely after only a few days of use. (Photo courtesy of Bendix LLC)
