Al-Futtaim Toyota and UAE Government Authorities confiscate 453,456 counterfeit car parts in UAE raids last year

Counterfeit Toyota spare parts reach AED 20.68 million of forfeiture value in 2018

Dubai, UAE, March 11, 2019:   Al-Futtaim Toyota, in partnership with UAE government authorities, has confiscated more than 453,456 counterfeit Toyota parts valued at AED20.68 million (USD 5.63 million) throughout 2018. A total of 26 raids on counterfeit car part dealers took place in 2018 across the Emirates mainly in Dubai, Al Ain, Um AL Quwain, Sharjah and Ajman. The majority of items were serviceable goods such as oil filters, fuel filters and spark plugs.

Al- Futtaim Toyota trained a total of 258 Economic Department Field Inspectors across the UAE in 2018 to increase their expertise in identifying counterfeit parts. These officials were also provided with the necessary tools to educate consumers about the importance of using genuine parts.

Commenting on the raids Saud Abbasi, Managing Director of Al-Futtaim-Toyota, said, “It can be difficult for some of our customers to differentiate between genuine and fake car parts, so we have an important role to play in training the official inspectors to ensure our customers’ safety.”

“I would like to express my gratitude to our Brand Protection team and the UAE government officials from the local Economic Departments and local Police for their combined efforts that made the raids campaigns so successful,” he added. 

Counterfeit spare parts may seem desirable because of their cheap price but can be seriously harmful. They can affect the vehicle longevity and cause fatal accidents on the roads due to failure of brake pads or other essential functions.

Genuine Toyota parts are available at Al- Futtaim Toyota and its reputable authorized dealers. All parts are built to meet the highest quality standards, adding to Toyota’s quality, reliability and durability.
