The last one suffered some cost cutting, let's see if they re-content this one. Their redesigns have been hit or miss.

From the article:
t's the fourth time since 2010 that Toyota has paid the maximum allowable fine for delaying recalls. In 2010, Toyota paid $48.8 million in civil penalties for failing to recall millions of vehicles, in three separate campaigns, in a timely manner. Toyota said it will restructure its organization to consolidate responsibility for quality assurance and review of safety-related issues in the United States. It did not admit any wrongdoing."

Kemet (an American company specializing in capacitor products) supplies the sub-capacitors to TRW Automotive (based in Michigan).
Funny how The Detroit News left that out. What happened to balanced reporting? Maybe because TRW is based in their home state?
CTS, Dana, Kemet/TRW...I see a pattern here.
