American auto makers

I wonder how American auto companies missed South Africa. (Probably because they wouldn’t put steering columns on the right.) All you see here are VW’s, Toyotas, Hyundais and Kias. Mercedes and BMW are the high-end cars.

South African cities typically don’t have good public transportation. Everyone needs to drive or take the limited trains in from the suburbs. Seems this should have been a great market for U.S. automakers.
