Not sure how that will work out in real life though. Check out this very brave bro on HWZ, who bought a car in July 2013 with tampered mileage and is still fighting the court case right now.
Yes sure you can sue, but do you have the time and money and patience like this guy?
Though I agree the case is stronger if the workshop imported the brakes and sold them. I was thinking about the scenario where the customer bought the brakes online then bring to workshop for install only.
I have sued a used car dealer in the past over mileage tampering so I'm fully aware of the issues. In comparison a lawsuit involving defective brakes is pretty straightforward. Just have to say that you need to find the right lawyer to fight the case
If the customer bought the defective brakes online and brought to the workshop for install only, I will go after both the previous owner and the workshop - two targets to sue, much better than just one. E.g. workshop knowingly installs illegal and poor quality brakes on vehicle, vehicle due to said brakes kills pedestrian or passenger of another car - there is no way in hell that the workshop gets off. They will face both civil and criminal liability.
This is the liability issue that workshops face when doing stuff like this, and that's why I say most businesses that are able to open for long know how to manage these risks, and they will never do it.
Unfortunately a lot of the legal resources that I have access to are not easily available to most bros out there. That said, I suggest never giving up when faced with these unscrupulous scum - got money to buy expensive car, got money to go after scumbag dealers and workshops
New vehicle? Then better dun play with brakes first, since your car is still under warranty..
Not new vehicle, just trying to figure out what these brakes are. The brake workshop guys that I have spoken to say that the brakes are of decent quality, probably Taiwanese branded that has been repainted with the Brembo logo.
