Honda and Toyota not identified as part of the emissions scandal (yet)

"None of the automakers found significant problems with actual emissions and fuel economy performance of the vehicles, which were destined for sale in Japan, and do not plan any recalls."

So in other words it's nothing like the VW scandal.

Making a slight error in testing a small number of vehicles isn't even close to the same thing as intentionally trying to cheat with every single vehicle like VW did.

Quote:

Suzuki, Mazda and Yamaha cleared vehicles for emissions or fuel efficiency even in cases where they were tested under invalid conditions, the ministry said in a statement. The errors related to slight deviations in the speed of the vehicles during testing that should have invalidated the test results.

The automakers examined tests they had conducted over different periods of time and in Suzuki’s case they stretched back to 2012.

None of the automakers found significant problems with actual emissions and fuel economy performance of the vehicles, which were destined for sale in Japan, and do not plan any recalls.

Suzuki, Japan’s fourth-largest automaker, said that of 12,819 sample vehicles tested for fuel economy and emissions since June 2012, around 50 percent of them had been inspected improperly.

“I deeply apologize and will lead efforts to prevent recurrence,” Suzuki Chief Executive Toshihiro Suzuki told a news conference.

Mazda said there were irregularities in 4 percent of similar inspections on its cars, or just over 70 vehicles. In Yamaha’s case, irregularities were found in 2 percent of inspections, or just a handful of vehicles.
