Actually do they make a much more efficent car than the Jetta TDI (Great car) - they just don't think you want to buy it HERE - they think we have all lost our emotions when car buying and simply plug the fuel cost, diesel vs gas, into a return on investment calulation and say, gee wiz, it will take years to get back the extra $2,000 that diesel engine cost me. But they don't count on us thinking about the 30% LESS CO2 we are pumping out, nor that our engine will last much longer.

When you read about the Ford with "65 mpg" - remember that is highway / city combined. The 65 mpg Ford the U.S. Can't Have - BusinessWeek
