    Most of them would have kept their cars if it wasn't for the payout. I'd love one of the cars they bought back. Only tree huggers truly cared. Everyone else saw, I get what I paid for the car and I drove it for 2-3 years... Sure, I'll take a check. You made it completely out of context. I'd take one of those, delete it and tune it and enjoy it for years and years.

    As one of those "tree huggers", I am happy that you and 480,000 others will not have that opportunity.

    A lot of the buybacks are sitting in the yard of a future "mobility " company

    That car company may we'll sell the cars back into the market after a period of time

    Back in 2012 I test drove a '13 TDI Passat (dealer didn't have a Jetta) and the car must have thought I was the EPA because the fuel economy was nothing to write home about. Eventually got the Volt.

    Perusing cruzetalk, I see a lot of comments that the tiny turbos like the 1.4L run better on mid-grade or premium fuel, especially when temperatures are warm. Of course, it's a marketing disaster to require or recommend premium fuel on an "economy car" so the ECM has to have maps for chugging along on 87. So, if someone is looking for another excuse to get the diesel, diesel fuel is substantially cheaper than 89 or 91 octane.

    Diesel fuel is not always cheaper than Premium. I recall a few years back where Diesel fuel was 20 cent a gallon or so more than premium, even though diesel fuel is less refined that even regular grade gas
