Japan's automaker Suzuki Motor Corp. stated it will log about 80 billion yen (714 million U.S. dollars) in loss in fiscal year 2018 due to a recall of two million vehicles in Japan, Xinhua reported.

The corporation also submitted an investigation report on inappropriate checks on brakes and fuel-economy to the transport ministry, local media reported.
