1,200 million fine paid through unintended

U.S. officials depict him as an fine for other manufacturers, should take note: “do the as Toyota “.

It’s over. years of research and discussions and than seven years the appearance of the first case as “Pedalgate” Toyota has signed an with the U.S. government to pay a fine of 1,200 million (about 900 million euros). to behind all open legal against the Japanese company for its that sped alone.

And we’ve told you a thousand the many details of this and long history, we will a few good minutes to regain novel and see what it really this agreement.

The investigation has four years, and Toyota has total about 2,800 dollars for his “Pedalgate” between and compensation

Everything started back in The NHTSA, the U.S. government responsible for investigating the safety of first receives several about Lexus ES350 suspiciously alone accelerate

NHTSA’s investigation, as often in these cases, passes inquire about possible that vehicle bottom facing corrections in it. But while is exchanged it gets serious: In a family dies aboard a ES350 move several after the accelerator pedal and unable to apply the brake.

pressed by the public interest in potential problems, begins to and decides to make a call to screening. The problem is that in an to cover both suspicion and spending a lot of money in the process getting bad press about its image worked, the Japanese not to call revision owners models, while not entirely why the recall affected cars, the public “deliberately” as reported by the U.S. authorities.

Internal Toyota studies point to discover that are not only problems with the that stick to the bottom but also a number of cars a design problem in the accelerator which makes this jam at positions. Toyota, which was to a redesign on the right foot in decided to freeze the redesign to U.S. authorities become that there is another and require you to change the accelerator also plenty of million cars .

Comes 2010 and the pedals Toyota continue to problems. In fact, until at least 5 deaths in car accidents are the faulty accelerator pedal or interactions with the mouse.

Finally, after many and turns, to the end of 2010 Toyota had called to review more 10 million cars worldwide, new accelerator pedals and modifying the control units so that, stepped on accelerator pedal the brake, turn off the throttle unit (goodbye tip heel).

The is that the U.S. authorities the call for review, Toyota to investigate if the disastrous management of all recall work and all this was deliberate or accidental. Have had death to protect economic and branding? Or simply Toyota learned of the problems of their and that was slow in its information and

With the research conducted the past four years, became clear is that knew what he was doing, and had the information and how to act in order to defend interests, even if it had meant in the first instance Certain of cars affected by the problems had not called to review. And indeed, importance is given to research in which drivers mistakenly on the brake instead of the accelerator, or of the interaction of a poorly placed transferring part or all of the customer’s end.

But Toyota, which was already a rock and a hard place, has had no to finish signing “peace” U.S. authorities. The document public, Toyota admits deliberately managed badly topic, having manipulated and information to clients and the NHTSA, and pay 1,200 million fine, as I above.

In addition, Toyota is for years under railway by the authorities, who monitored the activities of the on security issues, as a “test” of ways. If you incur any “neglect” the of the law will fall most on the Japanese.

Agreeing with the authorities now positive points for Toyota, if at On the one hand, and avoid criminal for specific causes people On the other, allows to close a whenever it comes to the media, bad brand image for the firm.

It be remembered that Toyota agreed 1,600 million to compensating owners of models by calls to review, to remedy the of value of their vehicles these problems, as well as measures for the customers, such as warranties and other benefits.

The We are saying that Toyota has his pocket for a total of 2,800 dollars in two years because of And of course, the authorities warn: should serve as a warning to manufacturers, so you do not repeat what has done.”

Everyone comes to mind General Motors and its newly Case defective bolt of and the key company… Will they Detroit giant thousand-million penalty?
