Many of us spend a good deal of time in our cars. Traveling to and from work, driving our children to after-school activities, running errands, even taking the occasional Sunday drive, most of us are in our vehicles more than we realize. Statistics from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration and National Automobile Dealers Association note that there are nearly 256 million registered passenger vehicles in the United States. These millions of car owners and drivers across the country will be alarmed at the business model of our latest rogue site of the week.

Carhidkits.com has made it a habit of offering counterfeit automotive parts to US consumers. To add insult to possible real injury,

www.Carhidkits.com is one of a handful of sites operating under the same business umbrella. In total this rogue site network reaches more than 40,000 US consumers per month. We were shocked at these numbers and ran online searches of the company only to discover that they also have numerous consumer complaints identifying this business entity’s sales of counterfeit auto parts across other areas of the world wide web.
