because back years ago when diesels were crappy it ruined the public opinion on them. now they are good. car company's dont build em her because people still think they are bad.

and american car companies make them, for europe

I am looking to buy a tdi as well, but they hold serious re-sale value. Anyone know good places to find used ones for sale???

they were difficult to find a couple years ago. Let me know if anything has changed I doubt it.

Leanz you have to spell Diesel right to be part of this thread ;)

jk I really don't give a fk about spelling or grammar as long as I type better than VWboy I consider it a good day.

You can buy a Dodge Caliber with a 2.0 VW TDI in it (that makes more torque at lower RPM than a Jeep 4.0...)

... just not in the US...

I have an 06 TDI Jetta.... Love this thing. It gets 48 MPG hauling 80 MPH down the highway....
I have had it 6 months and put 15000 miles on it. The fuel savings ( I drive 62 miles to work each way) over my 04 WJ was enough to make the payments.
BTW I still have the WJ my son drive it to school
