  The company with big Kentucky ties faces another fine.

  Toyota will pay 17-point-four million dollars to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

  Toyota is accused of 'not' immediately reporting a safety problem involving floor mats in certain Lexus cars.

  The mats could have become trapped under the car's accelerator pedals.

  The cars were recalled but the government says Toyota didn't report the problem quickly enough.

"...a tiny fraction of Toyota's earnings... without admitting any violation of the law." Another cushy deal from the Recall King's friends at NHTSA. I learned my lesson about Toyota's lousy products, service, and equally lousy attitude toward customers when the engine disintegrated in my MR-2 Spyder, and I discovered that Toyota had been stonewalling about the issue for years. At least the public is getting a more realistic impression of the "Toyota Way," and I've been blogging about Toyota at http://www.uc2.blogspot.com
