    Engine Technology International magazine September 2016 - lots of Diesel coverage

    are they really the *last* company? if you follow the tin hatters and think the vw thing was a government crack down who better to gain from it than government motors? makes you wonder every now and then, doesn't it?

    Volkswagen's Clean Air Act violations on 2009+ TDIs spark huge recall, investigations

    So if they're propping up cars that sit on the lots for more than 60 days does that sort of sound like VW thinks they're going to be able to start selling these things in the somewhat near future?

    Volkswagen's Clean Air Act violations on 2009+ TDIs spark huge recall, investigations

    so, as they admitted fault to move the 2016s, does that mean they'll be releasing them from port soon? my ordered 2016 is scheduled for production in early october and I'd like to get it in november as is scheduled. I couldn't care less about the somewhat elevated NOx, I just want my car.

    2nd gear roll MT

    That I couldn't tell you. What I can tell you is if you try this in just about any car made in that last many decades they should soldier on in at least 1st or 2nd gear mainly due to the car trying to maintain idle.
