WARD'S REPORTS ESTIMATED AUTO PRODUCTION

 WARD'S REPORTS ESTIMATED AUTO PRODUCTION
 DETROIT, Jan. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. vehicle manufacturers will


build an estimated 172,681 cars and trucks this week, Ward's Automotive Reports said today.
 This week's estimated build is the largest thus far in 1992, even though all UAW-represented plants were shut Monday for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. This week's output is 10.4 percent above last week's actual of 156,432, and 17.8 percent above same-week 1991's 146,524, Ward's said.
 Production has climbed steadily each week of the new year as more and more plants return from extended winter vacations and downtime due to inventory adjustment and line changes. Only four regularly active U.S. light-vehicle plants in the United States were down this week. Twelve were closed last week and 27 the week before.
 Of the cars produced this week in the United States, General Motors Corp.'s share is 41.3 percent; Ford Motor Co., 22.8 percent; Chrysler Corp., 10.2 percent; Honda of America Mfg. Inc., 9.7 percent; Toyota Motor Mfg. USA Inc., 4.4 percent; New United Motor Mfg. Inc., 3.3 percent; Nissan Motor Mfg. Corp., 2.8 percent; Diamond-Star Motors Corp., 2.7 percent; Mazda Motor Mfg. (USA) Corp., 1.7 percent; and Subaru-Isuzu Automotive Inc., 1.1 percent.
