I recently purchased a set of braided brake lines from an eBay listed seller called SafeBrake. Their reviews seem ok, yet my experience was far from it.
My Dmax is a 2021 build, 4JJ3 4×4 ute. The compatibility list on their produce page contained my vehicle (4th line down):
Rear brake lines fit, the front ones are not the same. When I contacted the seller about this, sending images of the issue, their response was:
IMHO, they’re immediately defensive. I responded further and they immediately dismissed further:
DO NOT buy from this seller. As you can see from the initial image from the item page for compatible vehicles, specifically they say the lines fit the 2020/2021 new 4JJ3 Gen 3 Dmax. Gen 3 was released in 2020.
I have reported this fraudulent seller to eBay for action, but I thought it better to also post about them so that Google lists this when someone searches for information on this seller. I am now forced to buy from a reputable local source instead, as eBay sellers just can’t be trusted. I don’t normally buy from eBay sellers, but I thought I would give them a try based on their reviews. Honestly, I think reviews are tainted.
