Suffice it to say, that vehicles imported under this exemption are not allowed to be sold without first getting written approval from NHTSA.

Is there any chance that the US is willing to look the other way on importation after the returned defender fiasco?

Negative.

I am continuing to receive regular requests for legal representation from owners whose Land Rovers are being seized by US Customs and Border Protection at US ports.

I don't think they want to make the same mistakes that they did in the past.

Affirmative. Unfortunately, Defenders are still being seized at US ports. I settled for the releases of two more clients' Defenders just this past week. I'm also working on a State seizure case, the first that I've seen. Interestingly enough, the State authorities admit to being feed the case by interested federal agencies.

State seizures? Like people having registered trucks taken by the state?

Federal seizures have been limited to the ports.

Yikes. I will assume you aren't going to divulge too much but that seems like a bigger witch hunt than going after one specific importer's vehicles.

They, the Puma, are everywhere - NJ, CA, TX, MA, and VA in just this week's sightings alone. Just had a great conversation with an owner of a 2015 90 in Framingham, MA.

Pumas

Can I assume that these trucks are all "illegals" to the US? If so, how are they coming across the borders?
