You can't get one of those in the States mainly because gasoline is still waaaaay too cheap here.

According to CarsDirect, a VW Jetta TDI has a MSRP of $24,685, Invoice of $22,903 and their offering price is $21,203.

If gasoline were seriously expensive these things wouldn't be on the "Final Sale" table at Filene's Basement. Gasoline has gone up enough to make people complain but not enough to change their behavior or purchasing patterns. The gass-guzzling 469hp Mercedes G55 AMG SUV still goes for sticker!

(I'd buy a TSX diesel if Honda offered it, but I still think it's highly unlikely.)

Here's an interisting post (on a Saab forum) from a UK guy who was almost "forced" into a diesel Accord from his beloved Saab:

"I nearly had to have a Honda Accord, but now................


Saab have released the 1.9TiD!!!!!!

As many of you will know, I got my Aero in March of last year (03), and am probably the highest mileage driver on the SS forum. (77,000 today).

My company car was due for replacement at 75,000 miles, and I was looking at what to get next, but first some background for non-UK members:

UK Company Car Government Sanctioned Theft (Tax!) is based on the CO2 emissions of a vehicle, basically, the higher the CO2, the more tax you pay based upon a percentage of the list price of the car. In addition, if you get your private usage fuel paid for by the company, you get stung for more money, again based on the percentage denoted by the CO2 value.

I pay about £380 UKP per month for the privelege of driving my Aero, and as you can imagine, this hurts!

Now, since Diesel engines generally produce less CO2 than Petrol engines, you can see why so many Brits are being forced into Oil Burners. The bset of the bunch for tax dodgers to date was the Honda Accord 2.2 CTDi, which would mean my monthly payment would be £185, less than half the cost.

But then Saab released the 1.9TiD, which means I can:

1: Save a bucketful of money! (£208 Tax Liability!)

2: Get another Saab 9-3!

3: Take my CD-Changer (Trunk), Auto Dimming Mirror, and the Upgraded sound system out and get it installed in my new car!

So, end of story, I just ordered it!


1.9TiD 150 BHP Vector Sport
Chili Red
Parchment Interior (Leather/Cloth)
Xenon Headlamp + Wash System
Comfort Pack
Business Pack (Navigation, Phone, AUX!)

Can't wait to get it, dealer will be contacting me with delivery time in the next couple of weeks!!!"

He certainly would have suffered with that Accord, don't you think?
