If this article holds true , this makes the MB 2.1 L BT the new defacto diesel King! Things like 369 pound feet of torque is a high bar ?! http://www.forbes.com/sites/bertelschmitt/2016/06/21/dieselgate-the-end-is-nigh-if-not-for-volkswagen-then-at-least-for-diesel/#2c397c41b630
2009 VW Jetta TDI slow news day! The car still used for the daily commute. It still gets 40 mpg! Thanks to VW, we had a maintenance cycle paid for! VW also paid for $500 in diesel fuel.
I have to say, I'm tempted if VW will give the owners $13,000 ( less than $8,900 KBB) . When combined with $1000 in goodwill and 1,300 in tax credits, 49. per mo depreciation/ownership costs for an 8 year old car is VERY good. Per mile driven: depreciation/ ownership ,the cost will be approximately less than 3 cents a mile .
I really can't say enough about the 2.1 L BT engine after 30,000 miles! It seems to not only perform well across the platforms MB puts it in, but it usually performs better than the V-6 gas models.
Slow diesel news day! Got a free 5 ga ($2.75* 5 = 13.75) l Propel HPR diesel card! No excuse to not try it now.
From here on out, there can be nothing but supersensitivitivity on affected Touared TDI models! At the same time, it's hard for me to really visualize anything that can happen to it for at least 50,000 more miles or up to the 150,000 mile mark. This CUV ranges from being a really nice towing vehicle to a beast @ autobahn speeds.
The wife is really liking the compact CUV, MB GLK 250 BT. It is also hard to visualize anything happening to it before 100,000 to 150,000 miles mark.
You got a love the diesel power trains.
Go Golden State Warriors !
