Suzuki Is Recalling 2 Million Cars After Cheating On Safety Tests
Suzuki plans to recall around 2 million vehicles in Japan after admitting it cheated on safety tests, filed false fuel-efficiency reports, and failed to conduct proper inspections.
Japan's third-biggest car company will take back domestic vehicles sold since April 2016 that haven't received a government-mandated check-up.
It expects to book a one-off loss of $700 million as a result, a large chunk of its projected annual net income of $2 billion.
An internal investigation of Suzuki's factories found evidence of faulty brake checks, tampering with fuel-efficiency data, and inspections being conducted by uncertified staff.
