Suspected is an understatement they did its systemic business practice 101 .

So, another large Japanese company falsifying documents and records for monetary gain? This seems to be SOP in Japan Inc. and not just in the car manufacturing industry.

Recall only in its "home market"? If this is the practice for its loyal Japanese customers, you can be assured of the same or worse for those delivered overseas. Nothing less than a global recall will suffice.

Another example of the lack of proper governance endemic in this country - starting with Tepco, how many famous Japanese brands have been affected by some major scandal? If they have escaped under the radar, you can be assured it is only a matter of time. Japan Inc. is rotten to the core. Then again, Korea Inc. and China Inc. are no better.

I meant I would avoid.

Par for the course - Illegal and unethical behaviour is standard operating practice for most Japanese companies.

"Be sure your sin will find you out." These knuckleheads simply will not learn that unethical practices WILL be found out. Just Do The Right Thing®. Do it all the time...

This is Seriously bad news for the company and even the country. I hope they perform corrective action that may help to undo the damage that has been done to their reputation. Personally, I will probably not make a decision to buy a Nissan next year because of this.

a la TEPCO?

^ China? I would not avoid anything with label "Made in China" or "Made in P.R.C." or "Product of China", especially anything consumable. Electronics are unavoidable when China is the manufacturers of almost everything, but at least under international brand, you hope that the QC would be better - that's all.

Monsieur Carlos Ghosn isn't happy with this news!

Do we know what was being checked? For all we know, it may be if the wipers and turn signals work. Is there a certification course and test to determine if someone is qualified to check if wipers work?

The only thing we know for sure is that posters here will condemn all of Japanese society as nation on sloppiness.

karlrbOct. 4 08:18 pm JSTThis is Seriously bad news for the company and even the country. I hope they perform corrective action that may help to undo the damage that has been done to their reputation. Personally, I will probasbly not make a decision to buy a Nissan next year because of this.

Without doubt this is bad news for the company and damages it's reputation, should get slammed legally in every which way, and a heartfelt apology and bow from Carlos Ghosn is called for. But from the consumer's point of view, I'd like to know the actual damage that was incurred. In other words, what are Nissan's accident rates, and mechanical failure rates compared to other manufacturers of similar class vehicles, that may be attributed to Nissan's improper action? I'd sure like to know that before declaring "I'll never buy a Nissan again!".
