"In a statement, Honda said it ordered a third-party audit of potential inaccuracies in its reporting of injuries and deaths in September and will soon share its findings with NHTSA."

Sorry, this kind of thing will fly in the US when a big company is in trouble and needs to cover things up or just time to make excuses, but it won't fly in the US. Nor will the US accept the inevitable "we had no way of knowing", or, "We were not aware of the third party findings -- so, wasn't us!" avoid responsibility game that is so popular here.

funny how GM is having huge recalls of its models and class accident lawsuits for the deaths cause be faulty switches. nothing like a bit of Japanese auto bashing to help the American auto industry

Why when the focus of an issue is faced with shame or blame people here always have to bring in the US! Its either you love US or hate US! As they say don't hate the players hate the game, if you can't beat them join US.

It doesn't really help GM. This article says there MAY have been issues with Honda's reporting of defective cars causing accidents. That's quite different than the internally documented safety issue GM let slide for years. I think what we're seeing is the NHTSA is smarting a bit after the GM fiasco, so they're cracking the whip on ALL the car manufacturers to see if there are any other "ignition keys" that car manufacturers are hiding.

Well, the article is about the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's investigation into a possible reporting deficiency, so (in this case at least) it's natural to "bring in the US".
