I own one of said diesel cars, this is my 4th. The thing that ticks me off is that these cars, right out of the box (tampered emmission software included) are cleaner than 95% of the vehicles on the road--they emit less CO than comparably sized gas engines, and at times, more NOx emissions--which is what the EPA has decided to focus on here. Never mind that our TVs emit way more pollution than the TDI--lets focus on one aspect of one manufacturer to make them look bad. Now I'm going to be saddled with a software flash recall that's going to lower my power and MPG, not to mention my resale value...THANKS EPA!
Not many owners will get the software up-date . Why should they . VW builds a great diesel and great mpg if i were a owner i would not do the up-date
It amazes me how people choose to put their mileage and performance ahead of the condition of the planet they are leaving for their relatives and children. As RVers most of look forward to the ability to get away and enjoy the peace and tranquility of nature. If we do not start taking care of our planet, we might as well park our RV's in our driveways and camp there.
Really .the truck you use to tow your rv puts out way more pollutants then a couple diesel vw's . we deal with ethanol in our gas which puts more pollutants in the air then if we did not use it at all .
So yes if you care about the planet you would own a VW diesel and tent camp
