JAPANESE AUTO IMPORTS FOR '91 ARE 25 PERCENT BELOW VOLUNTARY LIMITS
 WASHINGTON, May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Japan's leading automakers exported 1.76 million passenger cars to the United States in fiscal year 1991, about 25 percent lower than the voluntary 1991 export limit of 2.3 million cars, according to the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA).
 Japan has agreed to limit exports of passenger cars to the United States since 1981 and will further limit its exports to the United States to no more than 1.65 million cars in fiscal year 1992.
 According to JAMA, for the first quarter of '92, passenger car exports from Japan to the United States fell by 6.8 percent and truck exports fell 24.8 percent. While total automobile exports from Japan increased by 4.9 percent in March, exports to the United States declined overall by 1.8 percent.
 In March, Japan's automakers experienced a 36.2 percent drop in truck exports to the United States and a 5.6 percent increase in exports of passenger cars.
 Production of new cars and trucks in Japan fell by 0.2 percent in March, with a 3.1 percent increase in passenger car production being more than offset by a 9.1 percent decline in the production of new trucks.
