Mitsubishi's situation in southern California doesn't sound good ...

By the way ... how many nuclear power plants in Japan were built or supplied parts by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd and Mitsubishi Nuclear Energy Systems? If any ... they should be held off-line in the face of Prime Minister Abe's vow to restart the nuclear plants around the country. A proper inspection should then be given to determine if they are capable of being fired up again.

This nuclear energy stuff is sounding less and less acceptable ...

"discovery of excessive wear in the equipment"

I'm not surprised about discovery of excessive wear in the equipment supplied by Mitsubishi because you can find that kind of problems in almost most of Mitsubishi cars. Excessive corrosive on Mitsubishi car is well-known to all Mitsubishi owners. That's why Mitsubishi cars are not popular in developed country.

Huh? Toyota, Nissan, Honda, Mitsubishi, Mazda, Subaru all use the same steel supplier. The automaker's main Japanese steelmakers: Nippon Steel and Sumitomo Metal Corp. and Kobe Steel Ltd.
