One Step Closer: GM to Add Chevrolet Cruze Diesel to Ohio Plant Production Line
Even non-enthusiasts have probably heard of Top Gear.
Buy American. Build American. Any American company with "foreign" production plants should be required to pay an import tax on any product it brings into the U.S. from their "foreign" plants. If it is not "Made In America" it is an import, regardless of which company makes it or who's label is on it. Any diesel powered, America made, car and,or compact truck would be welcomed in America.
You clearly don't know what you're talking about. Diesels have been used by millions of Europeans and they love them. Americans will learn to love the wonderful torque and abundant fuel mileage that the diesel engine will provide.
Go electric !!! I just can wait the time when electric cars will be affordable. I'll buy a second hand one :)
the gm chevy cruze better concentrate on putting a spare tire in the trunk also make sure the steering wheels don't fall off instead of a diesel car. diesels are great for power plants, emergency power, trucks, busses, boats and farm equipment not cars. diesel engines power comes from detoniation the very thing that destroys gas engines. diesel engines must be heavy to withstand detoniation if not like the oldsmobile diesel of the 1980s they are doomed to failure. everything about a diesel engine is expensive because it must be made of superior materials as opposes to a gas engine. diesel engines in cars are noisy, dirty, slow and expensive to repair as opposed to gas engines.
Thats the only way I would buy american again is if they offer a diesel engine. I own 2 VW diesels and a duramax diesel GMC pick-up. The diesel is the best kept secret in the auto world. Hybrid type fuel mielage without the expensive to replace batteries and other parts.
I LOVE THE IDEA OF A D-CAR WE MUST BUY AMERICAN IF WE ARE GOING TO GET OURSELVES OUT OF THIS ECONOMIC SLUMP, BUYING AMERICAN KEEPS AMERICA WORKING.
