Authentic or Counterfeit Toyota parts?

There are ways to ensure that you are getting genuine Toyota parts. Here is what you can do when buying Toyota OEM parts or Toyota Accessories to make sure your parts are authentic:
As the old saying goes, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. It's certainly possible to find affordable genuine Toyota parts online. However, if you see prices for parts that are far below their normal price, there is a good chance that they are our counterfeit.
Use a trusted supplier. Ordering parts from a random company in China is a whole lot more risky than buying parts for a reputable Toyota Parts dealer with a long history of selling genuine parts. Look for companies with a proven track record for selling reliable, authentic parts.
Inspect the packaging. Many counterfeiters take great pains to make their parts as authentic looking as possible. They often pay less attention to the packing. When you get your vehicle parts, examine the packing for poor construction, strange colors, or anything that strikes you as odd.
When in doubt, contact the manufacturer. If you think you have been sold a fake part, contact the actual manufacturer and tell them your concerns. As they have a huge interest in catching counterfeiters and maintaining their brand image, they will be more than happy to help.
