    Diesel vehicle sales were up 6.4% in September beating the overall auto market. Certainly now the diesel market is carried by light trucks and SUVs, but I wouldn't be so fast to write off the possibility of seeing diesel sedans in the future.. Delays in government certification are unfortunate for consumers and manufacturers alike.

    Drove the Jag F-pace 2.0d yesterday. It will do very well here, even with German competition. Without it, they may not be able to keep them on the lot. TONS of pent-up demand what with the Audi Diesels getting killed and all those VW's getting bought back in the coming weeks...

    I've heard that the Jaguar 2.0d is a very sweet, smooth-running engine. Not sure it's a good fit with the XE, though
