Those VW " death fiqures are totally bogus!
Well as I & Gagrice have said in the past posts, CA does NOT test for diesel emissions numbers! However they require a biannual... "stop in" . In fact when I first got the 2003 Jetta TDI diesel's were exempt. In later years, they got extremely greedy. They reinstated the biannual... "stop in". Most importantl is the cash removal procedure.
I think it is time to confront the business diesel transportation issue head-on. IF diesel emissions from business type diesel transportation are truly the boogie man it is made out to be, it truly should have been attacked from the get go: say generations ago: even before automobiles!! The fact that it hasn't really been, has indicated it is the proverbial "smokescreen" Am I being vague ! ? It is NOT the boogie man it is made out to be ! If it was, why should any self-respecting eco con take a plane ride? Or even eat "organic" food not delivered by a EV, hybrid truck? I mean really, they could insist on the organic food delivered for only them by the farms by marathon training volunteers /slaves to a central gathering point. Then EV, hybrid delivery trucks to the farmers markets couldn't they?
Tsk,Tsk burning a campfire camping with a Tesla!? @ Lake Tahoe, CA no less!! If that campfire is not photoshopped, I'm 99.9% sure the campfire is illegal !! http://www.bloomberg.com/features/2016-tesla-camper-mode/
No criminal charges either.VW is paying way too much not to follow GM's example!
The lure of the open roads have always beckoned! 4 of the best cars I have ever wandered the open roads with have been four diesels: 2003/2009 VW Jetta TDI, 2012 VW Touareg TDI, 2014 MB GLK 250 BT & a premium fuel 2001 Corvette Z06 !
