Toyota Motor Corp. said last month that it had fixed about 3.7 million vehicles in the United States as part of its massive safety recalls. The world’s largest automaker said in a progress report Monday that it had aggressively responded to safety problems at the urging of its president and other top company officials. That sounds good, but I believe the litigation the company faces had more to do with it than anything else.
It should be noted that U.S. regulators fined Toyota $16.4 million earlier this year for failing to promptly tell the government about its car defects. The government has received about 3,000 complaints about sudden acceleration and estimated the problem could be involved in the deaths of 93 people over the last decade.
