Oh and if you want go the conspiracy route blame GM for turning America off to diesels ever since there craptastic 350 diesel left such a bad taste in everyone's mouth no one wanted to buy diesels until almost thirty years later

Also comparing cars from the 80's to today's cars won't work, they have less safety equipment to lug around less emission shit on them and in general a lot lighter
GM probably harmed diesels sales more than any other single factor.

Had a Renault Laguna diesel 6 speed rental in Germany. I would love to be able to buy that car here.
