One contains Toyota Genuine Brake Pads. The other contains asbestos.

Can you tell which of the boxes above contains the genuine part?

Counterfeit car parts are a serious safety concern and can cause irreparable damage to the vehicles they are fitted to – damage that won’t be covered by manufacturer warranties.

Counterfeit brake pads can affect the brake performance of your vehicle. But there’s even worse news for local technicians. Counterfeit brake pads in Australia have been found to contain asbestos, posing a major health risk to automotive technicians and the general public.

So please be on the lookout and report any suspected counterfeit parts to brandprotection@toyota.com.au or 1300 854 688.

And for peace of mind, always buy your Toyota Genuine Parts from an authorised Toyota dealer such as Bridge Toyota.
