Toyota is getting hammered because they did not report the problems to the US government in a timely manner. They recognized the problem and decided to gloss over it hoping it would go away. The Ford/Firestone problem was addressed quickly as soon as the problem was recognized.

Toyota is not getting fined because they have a dangerous product, but rather that they didn't report it when it was recognized.
Not only did they not report it, they did everything in their power to cover it up for as long as possible.

I wouldn't call the Ford/Firestone problem timely, since they spent so long blaming eachother. And they simply couldn't cover up the problem because it was causing deaths and was very apparent.
