Really? I want a refund for all the credits given to businesses. Obviously they don't need politicians.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Ahhh disregard. I just realized that the "Departed Facility" could just mean staging at another lot... I guess it could also mean it has been shipped but the non-KZ status argues against that as a possibility.

Now this is funny

I went to my local dealer to inquire about the CRD and the sales guy told me that they will start producing the CRD SOON!
Oye.

Wow, that is awesome... As a Canadian Dealer, he doesn't even need to wait for the order cycle, he can enter that order today (Their allotment is calculated differently but doesn't follow US order entry times).

I still wonder how these diesels will sell to the general population, when it will cost $7500 more than a standard Limited (because you have to get the LUX package with the diesel). Now if they could do like Mercedes who sells the diesel GLK250 CHEAPER than the gas version, then they'd sell a bunch. It also doesn't help that diesel is around 60 cents higher than regular gas right now in my area. I hope I'm wrong, but time will tell.

So what % of the production is that given they've been making them for nearly 2 months? I know not all the JNAP production is GCs, but don't know the numbers. Just curious....

Re: 2014 diesel production

^
People are paying $10-15 more for petrol AUDIs and Infinitis so I think the diesels will catch on.
