KANSAS CITY --- A report published by the Kansas City Star concluded that among the Big Six automakers, Toyota recalled the fewest cars annually relative to its annual sales volume from 2002-2006. From 2002 through 2006, the newspaper reported, Toyota issued 0.5 recalls for every vehicle the company sold. The next lowest ratio was Honda with 0.9. Ford had the third-lowest recall rate, with 1.1 recalls for every vehicle sold, just slightly better than Nissan. General Motors' rate was 1.3 recalls per vehicle sold, and DaimlerChrysler's was 1.4, the Kansas City Star said. The Kansas City Star based its findings on data from the National Highway Transportation Administration and Automotive News.
