WARD'S REPORTS ESTIMATED AUTO PRODUCTION

 WARD'S REPORTS ESTIMATED AUTO PRODUCTION
 DETROIT, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Ward's Automotive Reports said


today that U.S. car and truck producers will build an estimated 160,690 vehicles this week.
 This week's scheduled production is 4.7 percent below last week's actual output of 168,631, and 17.4 percent under same-week 1991's 194,524. The downturn was due to all U.S. plants being closed Monday, Sept. 7, for Labor Day, and complications from a strike at a GM stamping facility which ended last Saturday, Ward's said.
 The strike caused 10 of GM's U.S. assembly plants to close by the end of last week, and only three were able to restart on Tuesday. The remaining seven, with the exception of the Oklahoma City, Okla., facility, returned to work by today; Oklahoma City will reopen Monday.
 Calendar-year 1992 U.S. production through the end of this week stands at an estimated 6,628,397, 10.2 percent above like-1991's 6,015,923, Ward's said.
 Of the cars slated for production this week in the United States, General Motors accounted for 39.6 percent; Ford Motor Co., 27.9 percent; Chrysler Corp., 10.5 percent; Honda of America Mfg. Inc., 7.5 percent; Toyota Motor Mfg. USA Inc., 4.1 percent; Nissan Motor Mfg. Corp., 3.8 percent; AutoAlliance International Inc., 2.8 percent; Diamond-Star Motors Corp., 2.3 percent; Subaru-Isuzu Automotive Inc., 1.0 percent; and New United Motor Mfg. Inc. 0.5 percent.
