Toyota reportedly set to pay $16.4M federal fine
Paying a fine without admitting wrongdoing is a standard practice, and we can understand Toyota holding out for that caveat if that's what's really happening. More perplexing is that the same report states that Toyota agreed to the fine in order to help it move on and rebuild its brand. If it can't get what it wants and it appeals, and the NHTSA digs in for a fight – and remember, there's a potential second fine on the horizon – we're not sure how much the fighting-for-our-corporate-rights approach would help.
