Congressional Action is needed
This re-badging issue is some serious stuff. I believe there needs to be a Congressional investigation and some laws passed to prevent such criminal behavior.
The AMG fake badging isn't the only issue here folks. Down here in Southern Illinois, there are culprits rebadging their pick-up trucks with 4x4 emblems. Yep, I'm not making this up. There are all sorts of 2WD trucks down here with 4x4 emblems on the rear quarter panel. Some even have the audacity to put a giant decal in their back window.
Some guys don't even bother to put a spring lift kit under the front end so that it sits up higher...just slap the fucking decals on it and hit the road. That takes some kahonas.
Imaging what it is doing to the 4x4 truck market down here. Why, all of these imposters out there, and suddenly the value of our 4x4's are plummeting in value...I mean W T F, how often do you need to get in 4-wheel drive anyway...so the deception is easy to pull off...just don't be driving it in deep snow where you might need a tow and someone has to
look under the front end to attach a chain.
I think I'm going to write my Congressman. I actually saw a Case IH farm tractor painted JD Green the other day....We need to nip this behavior in the bud with some stiff penalties.
