--"Customers reported an average of 17 problems per 100 vehicles for 2004
models from DaimlerChrysler AG's Chrysler Group, Ford Motor Co. and General
Motors Corp., the magazine (Consumer Reports magazine.) said. That was down
from 18 problems per 100 in 2003.
Japanese and Korean automakers had a rate of 12 problems per 100 vehicles --
unchanged in the magazine's last three surveys. European automakers, some of
whom have battled quality issues in recent years, had 21 problems per 100
vehicles. That's up from 20 a year ago."--
