The company Performance Accessories was sent several letters complaining that "Off-Road Adventures" retained an Unsatisfactory Performance Record with the BBB for failing to answer consumer complaints and other SERIOUS matters. Performance Accessories continued to advertise and sell their products through this company, "As business as usual."
The State Agency, Bureau of Automotive Repair is in the final days of completing their several month long Fraud investigation into the company known as 4 Wheel Parts Performance Centers/Transamerican Auto Parts Inc. This company operates a nationwide off-road store chains, Including but not limited to the SELLING of factory truck warranties redeemable at all major nationwide dealerships, and is also in the business of selling aftermarket parts/accessories to dealerships nationwide.
Several questionable issues delayed and/or interfered with the State Agencies abilities to complete their full investigation into this business entities transactions/conduct. One such example was the, Failure to produce documents/invoices in timely manner and/or the deliberate withholding of these documents to gain a strategic advantage, which is a violation of the business and professions code.
President Gregory W. Adler of 4 Wheel Parts Performance Centers/Transamerican Auto Parts Inc. has vehemently denied any wrong doing to date and has stated via the internet that, The customer is number one at 4 Wheel Parts.
However, his statement completely contradicts his companies Better Business Bureau Company Reliability Report of having an Unsatisfactory Performance Record which the report includes the following specifics below:
*Delivery Issues,*Difficulty Obtaining Refunds,*Overcharging,*Poor Installation,
*Poor Customer Service,*Billing Disputes,*Failure to Deliver Ordered Merchandise *Missing Items, and Incorrect Items.
A BBB Company Reliability Report on 4WP/Transamerican Auto Parts can be obtained at www.labbb.org.
Furthermore, Mr. Gregory W. Adler's statement of, The Customer is Number 1 is once again contradicted by the 15 Violations issued by the State Agency, Bureau of Automotive Repair.
This is just some of the following State Agencies final report violation subject matter that will be available via subpoena:
Written False and Misleading Statements etc.
Failure to Provide Written and Revised Signed Estimates etc.
Charging for Items Not Specifically Described etc.
Installation of Non-Calibrated (Zero-Mile) Odometer, installed on factory leases.
Several severe offenses were committed; unfortunately no enforcement action was taken due to the fact that there are no laws/enforcement regulations and/or legislation on the books to date.
The State Investigator audited the annual idler arm sales records between a major dealership and 4 Wheel Parts. Service Manager stated (name withheld), That after approximately (600) 1500 series idler arms were sold to 4 Wheel Parts, they began to return them for credit/exchange. Service Manager continued, I know that you are not installing these parts on factory stock trucks, but installing them on trucks with larger wheels and tires that puts a huge strain/wear on these parts causing them to wear prematurely.
Not only am I going to stop crediting you these idler arm parts, I'm going to stop selling them to you altogether. 4 Wheel Parts were purchasing factory stock parts and stating that they were Heavy Duty to handle the larger wheels and tires. ANOTHER VIOLATION issued by the State Agency.
10 other violations were issued similar in nature.
This State Agency report that contains 15 violations has been brought to you at terrible cost and sacrifice to me. You may obtain a Bureau of Automotive Repair Records Management/Subpoena Unit Form explaining in detail how only your counsel may obtain this very important report at www.autorepair.ca.gov/stdhome.asp or write to:

Please make the necessary contractual changes and/or cease to do business with such companies who seek to obtain huge profit gains at terrible expense/losses to hard working business entities. Companies who retain such lousy Unsatisfactory Performance Records with the Better Business Bureau should not even be considered as business candidates. He who plays in the dirt shall also get dirty as well.

U.S.A. STOP! ..before you think about using the Better Business Bureau (BBB)... CLICK HERE to see how other consumers were victimized by the BBB's false or misleading information. Don't be fooled! It has been reported, when there are thousands of complaints and other investigations underway by authorities, the BBB has no choice but to finally give an UNsatisfactory rating to a BBB member business that is paying the BBB big membership fees every year. When a business is reported that is NOT a BBB member, BBB files WILL more likely show an UNsatisfactory rating, then reportedly shake down that company to become a member of the BBB. One positive thing about the BBB is, either way, if a business has an unsatisfactory rating with the BBB, you can be sure, the business is bad. But what about all those BBB member businesses that had complaints filed against them? Consumers never get to hear about them. What about the BBB advertising to the public? Is this a false and misleading perception they are giving about consumer confidence when dealing with a business? Click here to understand more of what consumers and business alike are saying about the BBB. You decide. ..Remember. The BBB membership is not earned, it's paid for!
