Suzuki Motor Corp. is slapped with a $3.86 million fine from the town of Esztergom, Hungary, for failing to gain the proper permission to expand its production facility there, Reuters reports. Suzuki planned to boost capacity at the plant to 200,000 units by 2005, although that decision now is in flux as the auto maker battles against the fine. Suzuki is threatening to relocate the plant if it is forced to pay up.
