  • 20 raids on counterfeit car part traders conducted in Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman and Al Ain
  • Over AED 36 million worth of counterfeit part seized
  • 240 government officials trained
Dubai, United Arab Emirates, November 1, 2017:  As part of its on-going efforts to protect the rights and safety of consumers, Al-Futtaim Motors, leader in sustainable mobility since 2008 and exclusive distributor of Toyota and Lexus in the UAE, conducted, in partnership with government authorities, 20 raids on counterfeit car part distributors in the first three quarters of this year, resulting in the confiscation of over AED 36 million worth of counterfeit parts.
 
In order to help raise awareness on the dangers of counterfeit car parts, Al-Futtaim Motors conducted a series of trainings, helping over 240 government officials in Dubai and Abu Dhabi differentiate between genuine and fake Toyota parts and provided the right tools to further educate the public about the importance of using genuine parts. 
 
As part of its public awareness campaign, Al-Futtaim Motors in partnership with the Dubai Police conducted two exhibitions throughout the third quarter at two different shopping malls, to educate the public about the risk involved in using fake car parts, and to help them spot suspicious products sold by unauthorized distributors. 
 
Saud Abbasi, Managing Director of Toyota at Al-Futtaim Motors said “Fake parts are not produced by certified manufacturers, hence; they don't meet any of the safety and quality standards set by the manufacturer. Customers need to be informed of the importance of buying only genuine parts for their vehicles, at authorized dealers, otherwise they could be putting themselves, their loved ones and the public at risk.”
 
Toyota genuine parts, sold by Al-Futtaim Motors are built to meet the highest in quality standards, thus adding to its quality, reliability and durability.
