I guess you'd had to have been there! Or a corollary being : gasoline as substitute?
A stark reality it, is isn't it? Fortunately or UN, they've worked VERY hard to get that current downtrend @ 17/18 %! My father brought me up a GM fanboy (Pontiac fan, he) It might have had something to do with being a volunteer in WW2, IWO JIMA vet no less!Hard to believe that GM used to own about 55% of the market
Me? I was never impressed from childhood ! 4/5 years old) I love cars from childhood. However, in 2001, the Corvette Z06 was one of GM's successes, that they were almost able to kill some years earlier. Prior to the Z06, I bought no GM products . Knock on wood with app 76,000 miles, outside of a heap of warranty fixes (again I applied the no harm, no foul principle, as GM stepped up) it has been running well!
Compared to any diesel I've had, it's a junker ?! Do I like it ? Absolutely! Will admit it? Probably not ! I live by dictum, never let a machine know that you like it or need it!
So, ....why do I do that with diesels , one & all will probably ask ?
In effect, I am DARING each & every one of them to fail !
So you can see why I don't even DARE to do that with the Chevrolet !?
EPA/CARB already have said that the people with the affected vehicles can continue SAFELY driving. Cars are safe, etc,. Indeed the Federal law/s does not FORCE a recall! Game, set, match on the consumer side. Harm to the consumer is the real and underlying issue. Yes, I would entertain $37,500 for my 2009 VW Jetta TDI. So called cheating fees/fines are between EPA/CARB & VW. Putting a consumers car in operations jeopardy, is a taking.In that case I agree. EPA/CARB contends there's 'cheat code' in the 3.0 TDI, too, VW denies it. We'll see. I bet all cars don't meet the test specs at all times on the road. The major difference with VW is the 'cheat code' issue. No cheat code = no issue, to me.
There is a suit in federal court in CA , where a plaintiff is pursuing the vehicle replacement remedy, due to a loophold in CA states' emissions laws. IF it is successful, I would want another diesel IF applicable to CA states app applicable 70,000 diesels!!! See I am not hard to please.
Ah, a Chicken Little story ! Got it! Zombie Apocalypse, Living Dead, et al.It's just math. The legal beagles are bummed since you can't tie the math to individuals....
So what you are saying in effect is these very same guys can predict the death tolls & rolls for every make and model? With most of the emissions deaths due to GASSERS, and emitters Fed,State, Local give free passes to: it makes you wonder why they don't ?
