Couple years ago Hino set up a U.S. assembly plant and with much bravado proclaimed they would soon be selling a whole line of medium trucks with their own Diesel engines in North America. Then, nothing... Finally a year ago Hino fessed up that their engines couldn't meet the U.S. emissions standards and they'd be offering Cummins engines instead.

Once again, I will state the obvious. If you enter into a contract with a 13 year old to purchase a car, it does not matter how perfect the contract is, it is null and void and not legal. When you make standards IMPOSSIBLE and you KNOW it is, it is also considered null and void and predatory. The emissions standards for diesel were lowered way too fast and by too much. They knew this and did it anyways.
