OP is only a facet of the systemic issue of Canada ignorance. The post is pretty funny too.

See?! You are even analyzing this thread from an individualistic perspective!

A diesel is like a Las Vegas hooker. They will last a long time, but they are quiet as hell and you don't want them around for too long.

@jcp123: you're fine.

...oh wait.
Well if you do that often you will probably end up with no points on your license and the ability to drive (legally) removed...

Which is a shame, because the only thing the Benz does moderately well is high speed cruising while being frugal.

It is pretty much shit at everything else. And cost 37 grand.

Damn.

Mazda is teasing us with thoughts of selling the new 6 with a Diesel...somehow I think the won't end up doing it, though.

Not sure if it has been or not. But I have heard Honda and Huyndai, for example, tease us with ideas of selling Diesels here and then retracting the whole idea enough times to be skeptical when I hear it from anyone now.

US people very keen on diesels, apparently.

U.S. Drivers Warm Up to Diesels - Registrations Rise 24.3 Percent between 2010 and 2012 - Carscoops

[I]a diesel car in the United States in more than 20 years. The compact Cruze sedan, introduced last year, will be available in early 2013 with a diesel engine that should beat the 42-mpg highway figure of the gasoline Eco trim..It's also a milestone; other than the Volkswagen Jetta TDI, no other compact car offers a diesel engine.

Well, I doubt they'd be advertising it so heavily if they don't plan to bring it to the US.

Mazda reveals new advertising campaign

Lutz is not a fan of diesel car in US....makes less sense finacially here...
Emperor Bob Lutz doesnt disappoint in SAE World Congress keynote

I incline to agree since Diesel does cost more than even premium gasoline, whereas even in Canada its at the price of regular.

Looks like Mazda's pretty well finalizing the diesel here...less so for Hyundai or Honda.
