Toyota to pay record $17.35 mln fine for U.S. defect reporting lapse

Dec 18 (Reuters) - Toyota Motor Corp has been ordered to pay a record fine of $17.35 million for failing to report a safety defect to the U.S. government in a timely manner, the U.S. Department of Transportation said.

The fine is the highest civil penalty ever paid by a single automaker to the department’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for violations related to a recall, the department said on Tuesday.
