Foreign vs. domestic quality

Regarding the Economy page article "US Automakers Gain as Japanese Raise Prices," Sept. 22: The author states that it is better to buy American rather than Japanese automobiles, specifically based on the higher price of Japanese-made cars. What the author neglects is the importance of quality and service. American manufacturers don't produce the kind of quality consumer goods that can compete with Japanese counterparts.

Quality and service are almost extinct in the United States, and the automobile industry is a prime example. I love my country, but until US automakers cease producing disposable cars, it will be impossible to please me as a concerned consumer. David J. Morrison, Rexburg, Ind.
