Toyota faces record $16m fine from US over pedal recall

The US transport department is asking Toyota to pay a record fine of $16.4m (£10.7m) for holding back information about faulty accelerator pedals. The department says the company failed to notify it about the flaws "in a timely way". The National Highways Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said documents provided by Toyota showed the carmaker knew about the defect in September. Reports of problems with the pedals prompted a massive recall in January.

Toyota has two weeks to appeal against this penalty.

IMHO, they should adjust their wording in their opening statement on 'safetytoyota.com' from this:

"... Our technologies will continue to advance toward the ultimate goal of making a vehicle that is safe for everybody."

to this:

"... Our technologies will continue to advance toward the ultimate goal of making a vehicle that is safe for everybody when we get around to it."
