No Sympathy for the Big Three

Reading the article "Big Three Put Pressure on Japan," Jan. 14, I find myself asking how United States automakers managed to distort US auto sales into a Japanese problem. Even as they cry about limited access to a Japanese market and attendant problems, the American market is 100 percent available - and they're losing it.

Japanese automakers have provided Detroit with essential research required to attract and hold US buyers. Is there a simpler clue than that 27 percent of American car owners drive Japanese cars? J.C. Tandy, Richmond, N.H.
