This made me genuinely lol. But, why do you say they're no good? Is it the fuel economy, or the self-hydrolocking design? heh
I'm bothered by how low my MPGs look compared to the old TDI's. But I think VW figured 'muricans want moar power, give them that and 40 mpg sounds CRAZY good. So people here actually buy the new TDI's.
Also, emissions strictness is a super handicap for US diesels now more than then. It is in fact the source of my hydrolocking woes.
