Bosch marketing exec Lars Ulrich (not the one from Metallica) remains bullish on the prospects for clean diesel cars here in the US. While only Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Audi and Volkswagen are currently offering diesel cars here right now, the models they sell are generally doing well.
I'm a fan of modern diesel engines and I love the way they drive, so much so that I put my money where my mouth is. Sitting alongside my Mustang in the garage is a 2010 VW Jetta TDI wagon. The American market diesel ranks will be growing in the next couple of years with new models from the existing players plus entries from at least Chevrolet in the form of the Cruze and the new Mazda CX-5 compact CUV.
If you haven't driven a modern clean diesel recently, it's worth trying out.
