Toyota Australia has sent a warning to all repair workshops across the country warning that selling and fitting counterfeit parts is putting their businesses at risk.

Evidence suggests some workshops have been illegally importing counterfeit parts (these differ from non-genuine parts as they are branded with the Toyota logo) which can be sourced at fraction of the cost of the genuine article to try and boost profits at shop level.

Simply put the parts do not meet Toyota’s strict tolerances and may be manufactured from inferior materials which could jeopardise longevity, reliability or even – in some instances – safety.

The best way to guard against the practice is to insist on ‘Toyota Genuine Parts’ from an approved Toyota dealership and if need be, ask to see the packaging prior to fitment.
