Abdullah Abdulghani & Bros Co (AAB), the sole agent for Toyota and Lexus vehicles in Qatar, observed Anti-Counterfeit Awareness Week from October 9 to
The initiative was held under the slogan, “Counterfeit Parts are Dangerous”, at AAB’s Central Parts Department, Industrial Area Street 5, as well as its retail outlets.
This came as part of AAB’s customer awareness programme to educate Toyota and Lexus customers on the matter and encourage them to use Toyota Genuine Parts for their vehicles, the company said in a statement.
Toyota Genuine Parts are “designed to the highest standards in order to keep the brand’s vehicles running for years. Toyota never compromises on quality and continuous product improvement, and the parts guarantee hassle-free driving and priceless peace of mind”, the statement notes.
AAB’s senior management has advised all Toyota customers to visit Toyota service centres and authorised parts outlets across Qatar for quality service and genuine parts. “Imitation products have hit the global market across all key items such as oil filter, air filter, spark plug, belts, brake pads among others and chances of these parallel imports to Qatar are possible. Consumers who value the security and safety of their vehicles and passengers should not compromise on this and should use only genuine parts,” the company said, stressing that fake and imitation parts are dangerous and put lives at risk.
It was highlighted during the awareness week that some outlets in Qatar are illegally using the Toyota Genuine Parts logo, without AAB’s logo mark, and are not authorised agents appointed by Abdullah Abdulghani & Bros Co. The company does not certify that parts sold through such shops are Toyota Genuine Parts.
The company also appreciates the positive role played by the Consumer Protection Department for its frequent market inspections to raid counterfeit parts outlets. AAB is planning to conduct various educational programmes as the part of its efforts to keep spreading awareness among Toyota and Lexus customers.
