Belgian Landwind Hullabaloo

We reported a couple of days ago that Belgian dealers are in big trouble because Belgian officials won't certify American cars for sale, causing them to suffer a three-thousand-euro markup when imported via Germany. One can talk about the relative safety merits of American cars vis a vis say, those of Sweden, but when compared to the Landwind, a Jeep positively seems like Fort Knox encased in adamantium. And that's just what Belgian officials are worried about; at the Landwind's low price point, any additional tariff won't be enough to make the vehicles undesirable to consumers.
