recalling two million vehicles shipped domestically, citing improper inspections and a series of other faults including false fuel efficiency data.

Recalling them? They should be refunding them!

Another case of an unscrupulous Japanese corporation lying to and ripping off consumers on an extremely large scale with no corporate fraud charges. TIJ!

Fuel economy is one reason someone would choose one car over others. The car market is very competitive and every model has several very similar rivals. This means that faking fuel economy is effectively fraud. You can fix faulty brakes or redo an inspection, but you cannot rerun the customer's process of choosing the car.
