Toyota fined 1.2 billion dollars by the U.S. justice

Toyota was fined 1.2 billion dollars by the U.S. authorities, a process that involves defects detected in 10 million cars of the brand. The penalty prevents the manufacturer go to trial.

The case dates back to early 2010, when 10 million cars were collected due to problems with the throttle cable. Quoted by Bloomberg, Attorney General Eric Holder explain that "Toyota will admit all responsibility, pay the fine and submit to a rigorous audit made by an independent entity."

The prosecutor also criticized the attitude of Toyota early in the collection process treating vehicles' an issue of public safety as if it were a simple case of public relations. "

Toyota has said it will assume all responsibilities for their actions. "We're back to the usual procedures at Toyota, for us to put our customers first," assured Christopher Reynolds, Toyota Ceo in a statement, quoted by Bloomberg.
