NPR business news starts with a dent in Toyota's safety ratings.
The 2013 Camry from Toyota - one of its best-selling models - received a crash-test rating of poor today from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. That's a nonprofit group backed by the insurance industry. This is a big change from last year. The 2012 model had received top marks from the group.

Only two cars received the top rating of good, the Honda Accord and the Suzuki Kizashi. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright National Public Radio.
