One thought on “Detroit Diesel Facts

  1. Bought and drove VW diesels for over twenty years while American car makers sat on their hands! GM’s feeble effort in the 70’s ruined the markets in U.S. for diesels! Mercedes makes the best today for cars – Americans shy of them after the GM fiasco. Awaiting VW’s Diesel elelctric hybrid powertrain for cars and utility vehicles – I dont give a damn how fat ir is stop light to stoplight, I care more how cheaply it can provide good stable reliable transportation and for how long – a lesson GM and other Aemrican car makers sorely missed.
