FILE - In this Monday, Jan. 12, 2015, file photo, the new Toyota Tacoma truck is unveiled during the North American International Auto Show, in Detroit. When Toyota Motor Corp. introduced the midsize Tacoma pickup in 1995, it was made at a joint General Motors and Toyota plant in Fremont, Calif. In 2003, Toyota built a new plant in Baja California, Mexico, to expand Tacoma production. Toyota still makes some Tacomas in the U.S., but it moved production to San Antonio, Texas, in 2010 after selling the California plant to Tesla. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio, File)

Toyota, headed to record profit, can afford the $1.2 billion fine levied by the U.S. government for hiding information about defects in its cars. If anything, the settlement may even deliver relief for Toyota shareholders and customers as a sign the automaker has put the four-year recall debacle behind it. Toyoda declined to comment directly Thursday, March 20, 2014 on the U.S. settlement, in which the Japanese automaker said it hid information about defects that had caused unintended acceleration in Toyota and Lexus vehicles, resulting injuries and deaths.
