Subaru's internal probe reveals use of uncertified inspectors - Nikkei

Yasuyuki Yoshinaga, president of Japan's auto maker Subaru, introduces its VIZIV Performance Concept during the Tokyo Motor Show in Tokyo on October 25, 2017.

Subaru permitted workers without the requisite certification who were in training to perform parts of the safety inspections and use stamps of authorized inspectors at two plants in Ota in southeastern Gunma Prefecture, in Japan's northern Kanto region, insiders with knowledge of the matter said.

Shares in Japanese carmaker Subaru fell on Friday after news reports suggested the company had allowed uncertified workers to inspect its vehicles.

The automaker is now considering a recall of 255,000 vehicles produced at the Gunma plant in recent months but did not specify which Japanese market models are likely to be recalled. "It's always been my goal to make this company good".

Subaru said it would report details of an internal investigation to the ministry on Monday, and that it needed to better communicate requirements to workers. The vehicles affected are all believed to have been manufactured for the Japanese domestic market.

The Nikkei newspaper reported the news earlier, saying Subaru has yet to determine whether a recall to re-inspect the vehicles is necessary, which could affect as many as 300,000 vehicles.

Subaru became the second Japanese manufacturer to admit it had not been following proper vehicle inspection procedures during the manufacturing process, Reuters reports. The broader market .N225 rose 1.2 percent.
