Government officials launched an on-site investigation of the Suzuki Motor headquarters in central Japan over falsified test data, while other car makers began production halts at several plants.

Three transport ministry officials arrived at the head office of Suzuki in Shizuoka Prefecture on Thursday, making it the third automotive manufacturer to be investigated. Toyota on Thursday suspended production at several plants until 28th June. The move will affect three models made at plants in Miyagi and Iwate prefectures, including its Yaris Cross.
