New diesel-powered cars have been scarce in California in recent years due to more restrictive emissions regulations than anywhere else in the country. It looks like the drought is about to end as a Southern California Mercedes dealer has started advertising availability of the new E320 Bluetec from this coming Monday. It's not clear why Mercedes-Benz of South Bay would advertise the $53,000 diesel sedan on Craigs List, but it's there. If you are in the area this week you might want to swing buy and check it out. If the Benz is a little outside of your budget don't forget the new VW Jetta CleanTDI that's coming next March.
