Toyota has agreed to pay the largest single civil fine in US history $17.35 million for failing to report in a timely manner defects related to unsecured floor mats. With over 14 million vehicles including 2010 Lexus RX350 and RX450h.

Toyota denies any wrong doing and states it has agreed with the settlement to avoid  a time-consuming debate over the issue.

U.S. Transportation Secretary stated ““With today’s announcement, I expect Toyota to rigorously reinforce its commitment to adhering to United States safety regulations.”
