Chinese cars: Toyota's warning

2007-08-01 13:20
Cape Town - Toyota South Africa has distanced itself from any Chinese car brand in South Africa following media reports that some of them use Toyota technology.

"Toyota South Africa believes that this is an inappropriate link to make," says Andrew Kirby, Toyota?s senior vice president for sales and marketing.

"Toyota South Africa is not aware of any formal technology transfer between Toyota Motor Corporation and the manufacturers of these vehicles.

"We should also point out that the technology alluded to, is now more than 25 years old.

"There is no relationship between Toyota and the manufacturers of these vehicles and as such the Toyota dealer network is not able to provide any form of service or parts supply for owners of these vehicles," he said.

"We feel that the implied link to Toyota is unfortunate."
