Compensation paid to owners of cars affected by the scandal and a fall in domestic vehicle sales is set to hit the automaker's bottom line, Kyodo said without citing sources.

The automaker said last week it planned to give owners of four minivehicles close to $1,000 in compensation for its overstating of mileage readings, part of reimbursement costs that will total at least $600 million.
