Today, Daihatsu has reported to the MLIT the measures it has taken to prevent a recurrence of the irregularities. Toyota will provide full support to ensure that the various measures are implemented. We will resume production of the models to be released for shipment by MLIT as soon as they are ready, while carefully communicating with our suppliers and other related parties.We will make every effort to deliver cars to our customers as quickly as possible while emphasizing, once again, that safety and quality are our top priorities.
