Daihatsu/Toyota Safety scandal

Daihatsu , the Japanese automaker owned by Toyota, has halted domestic production after admitting it forged the results of safety tests for its vehicles for more than 30 years.

According to a report released last Wednesday by the investigative committee, 174 more cases were found of Daihatsu manipulating data, making false statements or improperly tinkering with vehicles to pass safety certification tests including those sold under the Toyota brand.

The oldest case was traced back to 1989, with a noted increase in the number of cases since 2014.
