Ah, OK, that makes more sense. Yeah, I'd love to see that Subaru diesel offered here in the USA, especially if they could eliminate the high-failure items found on the VW TDI:
  • High-failure fuel pump
  • High-failure Diesel Particulate Filter
  • A water-to-air intercooler for the turbo that collects condensation when outdoor temps are 32*F +/- a few degrees, resulting in intercooler freezing/thawing, hydrolocking the engine, no-start situations, bent rods, and other nastiness
  • A sketchy emissions system with lots of failure-prone sensors, an exhaust flap that fails regularly, and lots of Check Engine Light scenarios

If Subaru ever brought their diesel engine to the USA, I'd be looking to see if they avoided VW's stupid design mistakes.
