It looks like more digging, has now equaled a second governmental fine for Toyota. This time it’s $16 million, the largest government penalty levied against an automaker, for a four-month delay in telling federal authorities about defective gas pedals on its vehicles.
Toyota is expected to pay the fine in 30 days. Makes you wonder if they really felt it? It’s good to see a change in the government has meant more protection of American consumers. Hopefully, the investigations won’t stop until there is full disclosure and the consumer is fully protected and made whole.
