I am afraid that the TDi will never return to the US.

The decision to permit import and certification of VWAG vehicles with TDI engines will indirectly depend on us and the elected officials we choose.

I bought a used A6 TDi 3.0 with 148k on it. Currently at 153k after a few months, I'm averaging around 38-40mpg daily. I love my car, it's nicer then my wifes S5.

As for diesel trucks yes the old 7.3 powersmokes are good, but hard on oil. Stay away from the newer stuff from Ferd. Cummins 12v and 24v 5.9 motors are bulletproof for the most part. I've had 3 Gm duramax trucks in the past LB7, LLy, LBZ motors. The early LB7 was my favorite, the LBZ had the better 6 speed allison transmission though. I currently have a 2015 Ram ecodiesel and its fantastic, I've seen up to 27.7 mpg on long family trips along the mississippi. Great little motor that does the job, but lacks the omph the Audi 3.0TDI has when you put your foot down.
