** For the North American market, it will be upscale brand German station wagons and hatchbacks, and it is especially true for many high performance models. Since the US uses a completely incompatible vehicle safety standard from the rest of the world [[labelnote:note]]The US uses FMVSS crash test standard, where as rest of the world uses UN's ECE standards. Canada's CMVSS is largely similar to that of the FMVSS, with a few alterations that accepts ECE standard parts such as headlights.[[/labelnote]], therefore manufacturers are very selective about the vehicle models that the American market will receive. For example, neither the Audi RS 6 and the RS 3 hatchback were available in North America, but the mechanically identical fastback sedan RS 7 and the sedan version of the RS 3 are available. In general, the stigma attached to station wagons and hatchbacks prevents manufacturers to export these vehicles to the North American market as they can't justify the cost for homologation with a low sales volume.

** [[{{Romania}} Romanian]] VW dealers refused to import until 2011 any of the spiced-up versions of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volkswagen_New_Beetle New Beetle]] - no 1.8T, no 2.0, no 2.3 V5, no 3.2 [=VR6=]. Only the smallest engines in the range could be bought, which contributed to the image of a "girl's car" or "overpriced toy".

** Malaysia is another country where automobiles are cases of this, [[GovernmentConspiracy partially due to an unfair import law put up by the government to force locally made cars down the peoples' throat]]. We did not get the Chevrolet Corvette, Impala or Camaro, only the lower end models. We did not get the Toyota Altezza. And anything by Dodge or Pontiac is but a distant dream.

** Malaysia is another country where automobiles are cases of this, [[GovernmentConspiracy partially due to an unfair import law that enforces a 300% import duty on imported vehicles[[note]]This means imported cars costs four times as much as they do in other countries- oftentimes, jacking up the price of affordable cars to extremely unaffordable levels[[/note]] put up by the government to force locally made cars down the peoples' throat]].throat, which as a result caused car retailers to not sell their proper cars and offer specially made inferior models for the market.

* Blackcurrants are considered a staple fruit flavor in Europe, especially the UK, right alongside other staples like strawberry, grape, orange, lemon, cherry, and the like. If you are an American, whether North or South, chances are you've never eaten anything blackcurrant-flavored. This is because everything blackcurrant-related, including the plants themselves, face restrictions or bans from entering the Americas due to their potential as a disease vector for white pine blister rust, which caused epidemics in the early 20th century and scared Americans of the time enough to never bring blackcurrants over again. Recently, however, processed blackcurrant products, like drinks and jam, have made their way over in limited quantities, and a breeding program in Vancouver is dedicated to producing a strain that won't spread the disease and has acceptable-quality fruit.
