Dubai - MENA Herald:

In an effort to protect the rights and safety of its customers, Al-Futtaim Toyota, leader in sustainable mobility since 2008, in partnership with the UAE Government, conducted eight sweep raids on counterfeit car part dealers across various Emirates during the first two months of 2018. This practice resulted in the confiscation of 178,781 of fake car parts worth AED 4.2 million.

The eight raids were executed across Al Ain, Umm al Quwain and Dubai. In Al Ain, a villa was raided with the help of the municipality, police, Al Ain Economic Development Department (EDD) and other government entities, resulting in the confiscation of counterfeit parts worth AED 120,000. Another batch of counterfeit parts worth AED 1.2 million was found in a 40ft. container in Dubai Warsan 3.

Saud Abbasi, Managing Director of Al-Futtaim-Toyota, said “The dangers accompanying the use of counterfeit car parts are massive. These parts are not produced by certified manufacturers and do not meet the standards of safety and quality set by manufacturers. Using these fake parts not only puts the driver at risk, but also their families and the public. We implore the public to always opt for original and high-quality parts from authorized dealers.”

Al-Futtaim Toyota keeps high standards for genuine Toyota parts, which are built with the best in quality, reliability and durability.
