    • Something else to think about. The way they group their data is skewed towards Detroit and against the Japanese. That is where most of the so-called progress is. Hows that you say? American manufactures only had 18 per 100 defects while Asians had 12. Right? But the key word is Asian, not Japanese. That means they throw Kia (worst in industry btw) Hyundai and Daewoo into the 'Asian" mix. Take them out and tally the Japanese only totals and you would get something like 6 per 100. Thats 1/3 of the number for Detroit. Progress for Detroit? Absolutely! But its not the Kia Optima and Hyundai XG300 that are eating Detroits lunch, its the Camry and Accord! As much progress as Detroit is making the Japanese are matching them stride for stride and they already have a large lead. Detroit has to work harder!
