I waited in vain for VW to take advantage of the new diesel friendly government in DC, but Chrysler-Fiat were savvy and diligent to do so:
Maybe my next Passat will...
Today comes the news that DUSTLESSNESS INCREASES POLLUTION:
I wonder if the environmentalist drive to reduce the size of soot particles makes also pollution worse in European cities, in other words: large size soot particles may be better...
Could this spell salvation to the VW TDI fix?
You be the judge:
Maybe not all the buyback cars will end in South America. I'm eager to purchase a "buy back" in mint condition for the kids in college.
Well, it was Bosch's turn in the hot seat and they quickly pleaded guilty:
Will the new U.S. government approve the fix of all VW diesel engines involved in Dieselgate?
If this is correct, and he follows thru, it may be that a large number of regulations, including environmental regulations which are applicable to diesel emissions, will be rescinded by executive fiat, and perhaps, with Congressional legislation...
GM: "It Is Easy To Get Our Diesels FED Approved"
This is amazing, VW says that they can't make money from diesel, but GM says, "YES WE CAN!!!"
Is GM cheating, or is GM teaching us that honesty pays?
The FEDS and VW have reached finality:
Now we can move on.
I don't know about you, but as long as there are diesel trucks and locomotives out there, there is the need for diesel cars.
I'm eager to see future diesel VW products racing on our American...
I guess that means we have to go back and buy those old cumbersome steel steering wheel to break pedal locks:
It's time for VW to hire Japanese engineers.
I grew up loving diesel cars/trucks/buses. Even as an engineering student, looking at the diesel thermodynamic cycle gave me goose bumps. So, I feel passionate about diesel cars. I have suffered some with my VW TDI, previous ones, and the big snafu of 2015, but I am not giving up on VW TDI cars...
Will VW now get back to the business of selling new TDIs?
After the dust settles from the buyback/fixapaloosa, my biggest question is whether VW begin selling new TDI cars again here in the USA.
Has that been cleared up???
I'm eager to put my settlement money back into a brand new TDI.
GM played taps on their CRUZE TDI experiment. All Cruzes will be powered by a gasoline fed 1.4 liter turbocharged rubber band:
They also called it quits with hybrids.
This puppy is under review by the U.S. ARMY:
The FED ALPHA has a fuel-sipping turbo diesel in-line four engine, and an ultra-light blast shield designed by ALCOA.
I wonder if it has to meet the EPA's stringent rules, like we do...
Already there is an AMBULANCE CHASER legal firm going for the class action:
Because there may have been deceit, the end result may include both buying back the car, as well as punitive damages.
Assuming the worse in punitive damages ($10,000 per car...
Either someone is betting on gasoline hybrid tech stocks, or diesel cars are indeed the root of all evils:
As an engineer, I love diesel motors, for their efficiency and for the lower pollution...
