The auto industry is producing more reliable vehicles. That's the finding of a J.D. Power and Associates dependability study examining problems experienced during the last 12 months by owners of 2008 model-year vehicles. The study, released Thursday, found there were an average of 151 problems per 100 of the 3-year-old vehicles during the time period surveyed. That was the lowest problem rate since the inception of the study in 1990 and an improvement from the 155 problems per 100 vehicles that owners of 2007 models reported in last year's study, J.D. Power said.

Regarding Bill Plaschke's article on lines at Dodger Stadium [Aug. 3], I feel that it is important for The Times and Dodger fans to be informed of the Dodger organization's efforts regarding customer service and fan experience/satisfaction.
