BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi are symbols of success and prestige.
Owning one is a goal more people are realizing, as BMW sold more than 2.3 million cars last year. Mercedes-Benz was just behind at about 2.2 million, while Audi unloaded some 1.8 million vehicles.
BMW builds its SUVs right here in the States, and Mercedes-Benz has a manufacturing plant in Alabama. Needless to say, German automakers contribute a fair share to the American economy, and well-off car buyers are taking home their wares in record numbers.
Yet the U.S. president is not happy and has vowed to block the “very bad” Germans from exporting cars to our country.
