Why are there some vehicle brands the US doesn't accept?

Skoda, Daihatsu, Scania, all Mercedes-Benz working Trucks, Alfa Romeo, DAF trucks etc

probably, and this sounds silly, but probably it has to do with supply and demand, foreign cars like skoda and daihatsu are not a big market in the US. Also, their safety standards may not qualify them to be driven in the US. Finally, it could also be the price of import versus the price of sale in the US. If importing the parts and the car is more expensive than other imports like Nissan, etc, people will be discouraged to buy them.

It's probably different reasons for each vehicle, but some possibilities include safety standards, emissions standards, and testing.

There could be several reason. California has some very strict safety and environmental regulations Some companies may not even try to import them into the US because they cannot be sold in the largest auto market.

Then there are national safety and environmental regulations. They may not be in compliance.
