As Toyota Grows, So Do Its Challenges

Japanese automaker Toyota represents a big problem for the Big Three U.S. automakers, as its sales grow in both U.S. and world markets. But as the company expands, it must also maintain the quality and consistency of its previous cars.

Melissa Block talks with David Cole, chairman of the Center for Automotive Research in Ann Arbor, Mich.
