Yugo America Inc. said it will introduce a 12-month, 12,000 mile repair and maintenance plan for all 1988 model cars. The enhanced warranty is part of the company's image-enhancement campaign that will cut profit margins in the near-term. The inexpensive, Yugoslavian made car has been plagued by bad publicity, including a recent Consumer Reports article that excoriated it as one of the worst-built cars the magazine has ever tested. First imported in August, 1985, the basic two-door, four speed manual model has a list price of $4,199.
