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.

If I worked for DCX and wanted to try to sell cars there, I'd have to do the same thing.

"German Engineering"

Does that mean the tailpipe leads into the vehicle?

It appears European car design is gradually reverting back to the Isetta.

Take it in to your nearest Chrysler dealer and ask them WTF. Do they expect a sign like that to not get some attention in America?

And if they say they're playing to a local audience. Tell them that they just lost a big local audience here in the States.

Hmmm....

The last car I bought from them was a lemon. Looks like it'll be the last car I EVER buy from them too.

GM should put up a BIG billboard right next to it, reminding buyers GM has absolutely no history of concentration camps.

Thanks for that post. Daimler-Chrysler is a disgrace.

outing the absence of any American influence in its Smart cars.

Precisely that,!
SMART cars have become a very heavy burden to DCX, sales have been very,very sluggish and it is dragging the Company down(because Europe mandates to manufacture low or "zero" emissions vehicle).

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.
