181 conspiracy: Part 3

Volkswagen America was not pleased with the accusations from Nader and Dodge about the 181 not being safe. The car fulfilled all the requirements to be a Multi-Purpose Vehicle.   The 181 was given the designation Multi-Purpose by the Department of Transportation, so what was the problem?

nader

Unfortunaly, Naders lobbying ment that the 181 was assumed to be a passengercar and for this designation, it did not comply with the safety standards.  It was the end of the Thing in the US, importation of new cars was prohibited.
