Japanese automaker Honda is being fined $70 million by the federal government for failing to report safety issues with its vehicles over the past 11 years.
Back in November, Honda disclosed it had failed to report more than 1,700 accidents that either resulted in serious injury or death between 2003 and 2014. It blamed a third-party audit for the issue. (Video via Honda)
In at least eight of the accidents, deaths were attributed to faulty Takata-brand air bags.
