      Thanks for getting to my question about the 4-cyl diesels in North America - but I have to disagree with you. Well, maybe your situation is different in the USA, but up here in Canada, diesel is consistently cheaper than regular 87 gasoline. Typically we do get a slightly different assortment of cars, usually smaller ones that might not do well in the US- Mercedes B-series, Smart Fortwo CDI (which got upwards of 70mpg before they replaced it with the gasser), we got the Toyota Echo hatchback first too.. The Vibe/Matrix sold like hotcakes here but I rarely see them in the US.
      But I definitely believe that the manufacturers are missing out on a market to offer small diesels in their cars, Like I said, I want a BMW or Mercedes that gets over 40 mpg! The Audi A3 TDI isn't cutting it since it's nothing more than a Golf with a $10,000 premium :( Also, no manual transmission...

      I'm confused! Are we invited to ask questions about Mercury or something for this post?
