Many jobs and businesses in the country have been disrupted due to the ongoing global health crisis. That’s why many individuals have to come up with various ways in order to adapt to the new normal. Unfortunately, some decided to scam people.
This is what Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) is facing right now as it received reports that some of its customers have been receiving insurance renewal offers through texts, calls, or house visits. To address the issue, TMP released a public advisory regarding the said fake insurance renewal. The individuals who are offering fake deals are posing as Toyota dealer personnel.

The public advisory also states that all Toyota customers are welcomed to report any suspicious calls, texts, or house visits from individuals who are posing as its personnel.

Always verify with your issuing dealers before confirming any transaction,” said TMP on its official Facebook page.

Know more about Toyota Avanza 2021
Toyota introduced the Avanza in 2006. It’s a new entry-level multi-purpose vehicle offering from the Japanese carmaker. The PT Astra Daihatsu Motor of Indonesia developed the Avanza and marketed it as both a Daihatsu and Toyota in its home market. The conventional front engine-rear drive layout was retained similar to the Tamaraw. However, it's a bit different from its AUV ancestors in terms of size, weight, and body. The Avanza is lighter, smaller, and car-like unibody construction. The first-gen Avanza has a simple and contemporary style. The MPV we have today is the second-generation Avanza, which landed on our shore in early 2012. It received its initial refresh in 2015, wherein Toyota gave it a more upmarket appearance. It received its second facelift in 2019 when the Japanese carmaker decided to give it a sharper and sportier look. The second refresh features new wheels, new taillights, distinct split headlights, reshaped fascia, and a new grille. The interior of the Toyota Avanza also received a full makeover. It now features a more modern dashboard with added trim detailing and sharper lines. A touchscreen infotainment system was added on higher Avanza variants during the 2015 refresh. In the 2019 update, it got an updated infotainment system and new digital air-con controls. Toyota Motor Philippines offers the Avanza with two engine options. The first option is a 1.3L engine with an output of 95 hp and 121 Nm of torque. The other one is the 1.5L power plant that produces 103 hp and 136 Nm of torque. The new Dual VVT-I four-cylinder inline 16-valve DOHC engine can be paired with a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission.
