  Why you're so much safer choosing
Toyota Genuine & Sportivo Accessories
    THE IMPORTANCE
    OF GENUINE PARTS
    AND SERVICE
    MAINTAINING YOUR TOYOTA

       A car costs a lot of money, so you want to get the most
       out of it both in terms of long life and economy.

       While we’re quite attentive to our car when it’s new or
       near new, unfortunately as time goes on, our interest
       wanes and servicing the car (just like washing it),
       becomes more of a chore. Most of us tend to cut
       corners – either neglecting the service schedules, or
       simply turning to the local mechanic rather than the
       manufacturer’s dealership. This method of care may
       save a few dollars initially, but in the long run your car
       could suffer from sub-standard parts and servicing.

       Read on, and discover just how much difference there
       is between genuine and non-genuine. The examples
       apply to Toyotas, but in reality the same applies across
       most car manufacturers.

WHY IT MAKES SENSE TO INSIST ON
TOYOTA GENUINE SERVICE

             Gone are the days when maintaining a car’s engine
             meant an amateur ‘tinkering’ under the bonnet.

             A Toyota Genuine service or repair is a highly specialised
             task, requiring expert technicians and sophisticated
             computerised equipment. This is why we recommend
             you insist on Toyota Genuine Service.




                                                                                       See below *

WHY IT MAKES SENSE TO INSIST ON
TOYOTA GENUINE PARTS

             Genuine Parts are designed and constructed to original
             manufacturer’s specifications for maximum performance,
             longevity and fit. Toyota Genuine Parts carry a 12 month
             unlimited kilometre warranty, so you have extra peace of
             mind on their quality and reliability.

             Have a look at the differences between the Toyota
             Genuine and non-genuine versions of these common
             service replacement parts and you’ll soon appreciate
             why Genuine Parts are a better choice.



                  WARNING:
          NON-GENUINE PARTS CAN VOID
            YOUR TOYOTA WARRANTY
    It is important to note that if a non-genuine part
    is fitted to your Toyota and that part’s failure
    damages your vehicle, then that damage will not be
    covered by your Toyota Warranty.

               OIL FILTERS
    GENUINE FACT: TOYOTA GENUINE OIL
    FILTERS TRAP THE TINIEST PARTICLES


         The Oil Filter is a low cost part that needs regular
         replacement. Essentially its role is as the name suggests
         – to filter and remove dirt particles from the oil as it
         flows through the engine. This filtration process must
         pick up even the most minute particles, because even the
         tiniest foreign matter can create excess friction and
         potentially cause engine damage.

         Only Toyota Genuine Oil Filters feature a dual-textured
         element to capture the minutest particles for efficient
         lubrication and long life engine performance. Cheaper,
         single textured elements filters can let small particles in
         and slowly cause wear on moving parts.




               TOYOTA GENUINE
               MOTOR OILS
    GENUINE FACT: USING THE CORRECT
    OIL IS AS IMPORTANT AS REGULARLY
    CHECKING YOUR OIL LEVELS


         The car’s engine is made up of hundreds of moving
         parts which perform thousands of revolutions every
         minute. To achieve this performance for hundreds of
         thousands of kilometres, every moving part needs to be
         very well lubricated. This is the role of your engine oil.

         Therefore, you should regularly check your engine oil
         levels, and just as importantly, always use the exact type
         of oil specified for your particular engine. Toyota
         Genuine Oils offer excellent anti-wear performance
         and engine protection, outstanding engine cleanliness,
         and better high/low temperature and extreme
         condition performance.

            BRAKE PADS
GENUINE FACT: THE RIGHT BRAKE PAD
IS CRUCIAL TO YOUR SAFETY


     Perhaps the most important safety feature of any car is the
     brakes. Yet it is surprising how many people will risk the
     performance of their brake system to save a few dollars.
     (It’s soon a false economy when you run up the back of
     the car because you couldn’t stop quickly enough). It is
     imperative to keep your car’s brakes in top condition.

     At the centre of a car’s stopping power are the actual
     brake pads which grip the wheel to slow it down. These
     are also the brake parts that require regular replacement
     because every single time you stop – you use them.
     Toyota Genuine brake pads are designed as a perfect fit for
     each model Toyota, helping to ensure balanced braking
     and durability in the widest range of conditions – and that
     means excellent stopping power when you need it most.




            TOYOTA GENUINE
            FUEL FILTERS
GENUINE FACT: AN ILL-FITTING
FUEL FILTER IS A FIRE HAZARD


     The longevity of your engine, and smooth performance
     of your vehicle relies on a clean flow of fuel. It is the role
     of the Fuel Filter to capture any impurities which may
     travel from the petrol pump and into your fuel tank.
     Toyota Genuine Fuel Filters are designed specifically for
     each Toyota model, to fit fuel lines precisely and therefore
     trap the tiniest of impurities. Unlike some non-genuine
     fuel filters, Toyota Genuine Fuel Filters are constructed of
     high quality resin plastic which is both airtight and highly
     heat resistant – an important feature when you’re talking
     petrol in the hot environment of an engine bay!

                                                                      4
                TOYOTA GENUINE
                SPARK PLUGS
    GENUINE FACT: THE RIGHT SPARK PLUG WILL
    MAKE YOUR CAR MORE FUEL EFFICIENT


         The spark plug is one of the smallest and cheapest
         components in an engine, yet it is responsible for actually
         making the engine operate. Thousands of times every
         minute, the spark plug ignites the fuel and air mixture
         which propels the engine’s cylinders to drive the car. At
         first glance all spark plugs look the same. However, there
         are many differences between spark plugs which make
         enormous differences to the way your engine performs.

         Toyota Genuine Spark Plugs feature a unique U-groove
         ground electrode which means it creates a bigger and
         brighter spark for better fuel efficiency, faster response
         and lower gas emissions. Some non-genuine spark plugs
         can not only reduce performance, they can also increase
         the chances of damage to your engine by failing to
         provide an optimal fuel firing environment.




                TOYOTA GENUINE
                AIR FILTERS
    GENUINE FACT: LIKE YOU, YOUR CAR PERFORMS
    BEST WHEN BREATHING PURE, CLEAN AIR


         It is the combination of fuel and air ignited in the cylinder
         chamber which drives the internal combustion engine. The
         air entering this chamber must be filtered for impurities to
         provide clean air intake, smooth engine performance and
         longer engine life. Toyota Genuine Air Filters feature a triple
         layer filtering element which helps to ensure that your
         engine stays free of any dust or contaminants. The Toyota
         Genuine Filter Element is needle-punched to allow for a
         smooth, efficient flow of filtered air to the combustion
         chamber for clean ignition of fuel.

           TOYOTA GENUINE
           CLUTCH KITS
GENUINE FACT: TOYOTA GENUINE
CLUTCHES ARE DESIGNED FOR PERFECT
FIT WITH EACH MODEL


     The clutch provides a smooth transfer of power from the
     engine to the transmission to propel your vehicle. In
     manual transmissions, the clutch engages and disengages
     each gear as you change up and down or into reverse.

     This constant use when driving means clutches are
     prone to wear, and eventually need replacement. But
     before replacing your clutch, check the difference
     between genuine and non-genuine models.

     For example, Toyota Genuine Clutches feature rubber
     torsion springs which reduce vibration significantly more
     than traditional springs. The Toyota Genuine Clutch Disc
     also features superior shock absorption for easy half-
     clutch gear engagement... and easier driving.




                                                                 6
    THE IMPORTANCE OF
    GENUINE ACCESSORIES
    AUSTRALIAN DESIGN RULE (ADR)
    TOYOTA PASSES EVERY TEST

       As a major vehicle manufacturer, every single Toyota
       component and accessory when fitted, must maintain
       vehicle compliance with the regulations and standards of
       the Government’s ‘Australian Design Rules’ (ADRs).

       Surprisingly, many parts and accessories which are
       imported or made by small businesses (e.g. the local
       towbar maker) are not tested to prove vehicle
       compliance with ADRs when fitted.

       This, together with the lack of regulatory policing for
       non-genuine products means ADR compliance, and
       therefore safety, are complete unknowns.

       IS THAT A RISK YOU’RE WILLING TO TAKE
       WITH YOUR SAFETY?



    TEST + TEST + TEST = THE BEST

       Toyota invests millions upon millions of dollars in crash
       and performance testing to ensure global benchmark
       safety and quality.

       For example, for major new vehicle bullbar development
       programs, Toyota conducts multiple vehicle collision
       tests to ensure Genuine Accessory Bullbars trigger
       airbags at precisely the right millisecond in a full range
       of crash situations.

       Aftermarket bullbar manufacturers typically cannot afford
       to crash test 4WD after 4WD so there is no way of
       precisely knowing whether they are safe or dangerous
       when it comes to airbag deployment timings.

       Therefore, you have to ask the question, ‘What’s the
       point of fitting any brand of bullbar if it may actually
       decrease your safety?’

           BULLBARS
GENUINE FACT: SOME NON-GENUINE
BULLBARS MAY ACTUALLY REDUCE
YOUR LEVELS OF SAFETY


MULTIPLE CRASH TESTS FOR SAFETY AND
PRECISE AIRBAG COMPATIBILTY

     Only the Toyota Genuine range of Airbag Compatible
     Bullbars are designed to work in conjunction with your
     Toyota’s SRS airbag and other safety systems in the
     event of a frontal collision.

     Fit any non-genuine bullbar to a Toyota with airbags and
     you could run the major risk of incorrect airbag
     deployment. Remember airbags are designed for
     millisecond responses – a fraction of a second too soon
     or too late and the consequences can be disastrous.

     That’s exactly the reason why Toyota has invested
     heavily in the development of a unique Responder
     Mounting System for Toyota Genuine Bullbars.

     Many of the bullbars sold by the local 4WD store can
     render your vehicle Non-ADR compliant when fitted,
     and many are not airbag compatible.

     If you want a bullbar to help preserve your levels of
     safety and peace of mind rather than potentially
     decrease them, insist on Toyota Genuine.

               ALLOY WHEELS
    GENUINE FACT: SOME ALLOYS MAY
    AFFECT YOUR INSURANCE


    CUSTOM DESIGNED TO FIT PERFECTLY

         There’s a lot more to Sportivo and Toyota Genuine Alloy
         Wheels than sporty good looks.

         For starters, every Toyota Genuine Alloy Wheel is
         developed and tested to maintain vehicle ADR
         compliance when fitted and meet the stringent global
         Toyota safety and performance standards. Put simply,
         this means Toyota Genuine Alloy Wheels are
         engineered to levels of safety and performance far
         above many other alloys.

         Just as importantly, Toyota Genuine Alloys are
         comprehensively tested to ensure precision fit,
         performance and durability for each individual model.

         Toyota conducts ‘wheelhouse clearance tests’ to ensure
         the wheel and tyre combination fits within the vehicle’s
         wheel arch at all loading and full-lock conditions – even
         when you inadvertently run up a gutter!

         On the other hand, the ‘one size fits all’ alloy wheels
         you can buy from tyre centres can introduce all sorts of
         safety and performance problems.

         In some cases, they can rub against wheel arches
         when cornering and going over bumps, damage
         suspension and cause noise, vibration and harshness.
         And they can be downright dangerous – putting your
         safety at risk by reducing the handling, stability and
         steering ability of your vehicle.

         Fitting different size alloy wheels and tyres to those
         specified by the manufacturer (check the Tyre Placard
         on your car which specifies wheel sizes and approved
         tyre sizes, speed ratings etc) can cause problems with
         both vehicle registration and the validity of your motor
         insurance. That’s because these after-market wheel/
         tyre combinations are considered to be significant
9
     modifications – and unless they are pre-approved for
     fitting they could be a very expensive choice in the event
     of an insurance claim.

     Toyota is absolutely thorough with compliance issues
     beyond the wheels themselves – providing model-
     specific Alloy Wheel Fitting Kits that include items such
     as Tyre Placards, correctly sized Wheel Braces, Spare
     Wheel Tie-down Bolts and more.

     If larger size wheels/tyres are fitted to your car, you can
     actually increase the circumference of the wheel. As your
     car’s speedo reads from the ‘normal’ size of your car’s
     tyres, a larger wheel and tyre combination may mean
     you are travelling faster than you think.

     So while you may think you’re doing 100kph according
     to your speedo, you may well be booked at a
     substantially higher speed. A couple of mistakes like
     that, and the subsequent demerit points may see your
     licence in jeopardy.

     Another major issue with non-genuine alloy wheels is
     that many imported styles are not heat-treated during
     manufacture, making them more prone to damage.
     Toyota’s latest genuine alloys are heat treated so they can
     cope with Australia’s poor road conditions.

     With Sportivo and Toyota Genuine wheels even the
     wheel nuts are tested for maximum performance and
     longevity. And of course, any problems caused by
     non-genuine alloy wheels will not be covered by the
     Toyota new vehicle warranty.

                BODY SYSTEMS & SPOILERS
     GENUINE FACT: SPORTIVO BODY SYSTEMS
     ARE IMPACT RESISTANT TO
     MINOR BUMPS AND SCRAPES


     BUILT FOR STRENGTH AND FLEXIBILITY

          Sportivo body systems, skirts and spoilers are
          constructed from high tech materials which are
          lightweight, flexible and impact resistant. They are
          comprehensively tested by Toyota, and maintain
          vehicle compliance with relevant ADRs.

          Naturally, the precision manufacturing processes
          ensure a perfect fit, and they come with a 3 year Toyota
          Warranty when fitted at new car purchase.

          Non-genuine body kits and spoilers are often made
          from hand-laid fibreglass which is less precise, heavier
          and easily damaged by even minor bumps and
          scrapes. They are less likely to be verified for vehicle
          ADR compliance when fitted, and usually require
          plenty of drilling for fitting.

          Even the brake lights in Sportivo spoilers are tested for
          brightness, vehicle ADR compliance and performance –
          proving that attention to every detail is compulsory
          with Toyota Genuine.

          Non-genuine spoilers rarely, if ever go through the
          comprehensive high speed road testing that Sportivo
          spoilers are subjected to. So while those extra wide,
          high mounted spoilers may look impressive, they may
          actually push down too heavily on the rear of the car,
          lightening the steering and reducing front wheel grip.
          The result can be a loss of control when you most
          need it – at high speed.

            SPORTS SUSPENSION
GENUINE FACT: EXTRA STIFF SUSPENSIONS
CAN DRAMATICALLY DEGRADE
HANDLING IN WET CONDITIONS


SAFER HANDLING & SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE

     Sportivo Sports Suspensions are engineered to improve
     handling, and make your car sportier and more fun to drive.
     Fully tested to Toyota Standards, they are subjected to a
     large variety of conditions (including high speed racetrack
     driving) and every component is precisely matched for
     optimum performance. Non-genuine springs and
     suspension modifications are often not ADR compliant,
     and generic ‘one size fits all’ type components can
     adversely affect body durability, braking, ride, handling,
     steering and safety, particularly at high speeds and over poor
     or wet road surfaces. The craze for extra low suspensions
     is potentially dangerous and can result in vehicle damage,
     poor handling, and non-compliance with ADRs.




            MUFFLERS
A NOTEWORTHY NECESSITY FOR MOTORSPORT
STYLE DRIVING

     Sportivo Sports Mufflers are designed and tested to
     not only produce an exciting, throatier note, they
     also improve muffler flow-through for additional
     performance over particular rev ranges. With police
     crackdowns on noisy vehicles, it’s also reassuring to
     know Sportivo mufflers (unlike many non-genuine
     styles) maintain vehicle compliance with the Australian
     Design Rules for noise and emissions. Importantly,
     Genuine Accessory Sportivo Mufflers are tuned to
     prevent droning at highway speeds which is an
     annoying trait with many non-genuine sports mufflers.

                                                                      12

                  SEATCOVERS
     GENUINE FACT: SHEEPSKIN SEATCOVERS
     ARE POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS
     WITH SIDE AIRBAGS


     AIRBAG COMPATIBLITY IS VITAL TO YOUR SAFETY.

           If your Toyota has side seat-mounted SRS airbags, it is
           vital that the ONLY seatcovers you fit are Toyota
           Genuine Airbag Compatible Seatcovers. This is because
           non-genuine seat covers (cloth or sheepskin) are not
           designed or tested by Toyota for airbag compatibility.
           Toyota seat airbag testing has shown that non-genuine
           seat covers can force the airbag to deploy behind the
           occupant, rather than to the side, propelling them
           forward, and inflicting possibly serious injuries.

           Toyota Genuine Airbag Compatible Seatcovers feature a
           unique side stitching design, materials and construction
           that are comprehensively tested by Toyota to instantly
           burst apart and not affect correct, safe airbag deployment.
           Naturally, all Toyota Genuine seatcovers are designed for
           perfect fit, easy cleaning and excellent durability.

           Non genuine seatcovers have no such construction
           integrity, and in fact, the stronger the stitching, the more
           dangerous they are in the event of an accident.
           Particularly dangerous are sheepskin seatcovers because
           they are typically sewn together using extra strong thread
           to hold the heavy hide in place.


      AN INVESTMENT IN YOUR FUTURE
      Remember ‘you only get what you pay for’ with car
      accessories. While you may save a few dollars on a set of
      third-world imported alloys from the local tyre store, or
      a simple bulbar from a local fabricator, you are sacrificing
      the benefit from millions of dollars worth of design
      performance and safety testing. A few kilometres down
      the road, those few dollars you’ve saved could buy you a
      whole lot of motoring trouble. If you’ve invested in a
      new Toyota, keep it 100% Toyota Genuine for your
      future safety and to protect your Toyota warranty.

           TOW BARS
A GENUINELY SAFER WAY TO TOW

     It’s reassuring when you’re towing a boat or van
     down the highway or in the outback to know that
     your Toyota Genuine Tow Bar has been tested to
     comply with vehicle ADRs as well as Toyota’s stringent
     Global Standards.

     These tests include a punishing dynamic testing
     schedule that simulates years of maximum capacity
     usage. The result is a tow bar range that is stronger and
     safer for the substantial loads they are designed to carry.

     Choose from a number of styles and capacities
     including the visually discrete Shadow Mount style or
     the larger capacity Square Hitchbox version for larger
     boats or vans.

     Toyota’s range of Genuine Trailer Harnesses include
     versions that simply plug into existing vehicle wiring so
     messy and time consuming soldering is avoided or
     minimised. Choose from 3 plug configurations to suit
     your state’s road regulations.




                                                                   14
