Mitsubishi Pajero faced a cold welcoming in south America: "Spanish slang word meaning 'He who fiddles with himself for sexual gratification'.
Unknowingly used by a major automobile manufacturer who took the more academic translation of the word to mean 'Straw Dealer'"

In Israel used to be a local manufactured fiberglass car fr the masses whose name was from it's inception the foreign word 'Duke' ( דוכס) but due to the connected letters (I guess as a practical solution for the aluminum casting/forging to hold together) and the squarish font it looked like the Hebrew word 'Smart/Wise' (חכם) http://israelmotorindustry.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/Carmel-D842.jpg
