Hmmm ~ screw the Germans and their Swiss running dogs.
Given the absolute crap that American car companies have tried to pawn off on Africa over the years, it's not surprising that American cars have a horrible name there. American cars had a nasty habit of dying out in the bush - which tends to be fatal for the passengers.

I had heard domestic unit sales for daimler chrysler has slipped since Dr Z went on the air as the spokescritter, I wonder why? Thanks for posting this.

Sans American flair obviously the SMARTS have a hell of a time selling.
What did they do with the other half of it or is that on another billboard at the side of this one?
If anyone buys one of these and decides to pay me a visit, please do NOT park it in my driveway or anywhere within shouting distance of my house. Park it far away, then call me and I'll come and pick you up.
Members of my family drive Japanese cars that are made in America.
