GM establishes quality goals

DETROIT — General Motors has set quality targets that will be a factor in management bonuses, said spokesman Tom Pyden. He said the goal would be based on GM’s performance in the annual J.D. Power and Associates Initial Quality Study, which will be released in May.

In the 2001 survey, GM placed fourth with 1.46 problems per vehicle. Toyota Motor Corp. topped the list with 1.15 problems per vehicle.
