SAN FRANCISCO - Consumer Reports rarely gives high marks to American cars, making its designation of the Buick Regal as the most reliable family sedan a milestone for U.S. automakers. GM's Buick Regal edged out the Toyota Camry and the Nissan Maxima in proving to be slightly less in need of repairs, according to the annual reliability survey of 675,000 car owners. Ford also came up with better-running models, with improvements at Focus, Escape and Explorer pushing those models into the coveted "recommended" category of the magazine's car-rating guide.

THE HIGHWAY OUT OF DELHI, INDIA, LOOKS like it has a rash. What is this stuff? It's smashed-up watermelons from a truck. I realize I am going to die here, along with all this fruit, when I notice that my driver hasn't slowed. Ahead on the left is the wreck of the melon truck. I can see the Indian make, Tata, on its colorful bumper and the instruction, "Please Blow Horn." Too late for that. To our right is a steamroller rolling the wrong way. Straight in front, we are about to demolish three old men on a bicycle, a cart being tugged by a camel, a homemade tractor, and -- I can watch their flicking tails up close -- a herd of calico goats.

Toyota Motor Corp. posted yesterday a 39.2 percent gain in profit for its fiscal first quarter, a hefty increase helped by booming U.S. sales and a weaker yen that boosted the value of the Japanese automaker's overseas sales. Net income for Toyota, the world's second-largest automaker, was 371.5 billion yen ($3.23 billion) for the quarter that ended June 30, up from 266.9 billion yen in the comparable quarter last year. Sales rose 13 percent to 5.64 trillion yen ($49 billion) from 5 trillion yen. Much of the automaker's growth occurred in North America, where Toyota is soaring on the strength of its reputation for building reliable, fuel-efficient cars.
