Who regrets buy the diesel?

Guys, does anyone here regret buying the diesel vs. the V6 or V8 engine choices? If so, why?

Not one bit so far (6 months and 13000 km so far). Ask me after some cold winter weather.

Just turned 46000 miles on my '14. Not one problem whatsoever, and still runs tip-top.

No. I dreamed so long to have my first diesel and cherish each sound and performance out of it.
My first winter with -30C are to come, and I hope to keep the same good opinion.

Not at all. There have been some well documented teething problems, especially with the MY'14s which is what we have, but I would purchase it again without hesitation.

Mine has been great, the low down torque does it for me.

Like it a lot. Everything I thought it would be. No problems in almost 11K miles.

Went through a very very cold winter and heard fuel pump working hard. Just add some Howes with each fill up and keep the gellin down.

Re: Who regrets buy the diesel?

I've been drinking the diesel kool-aid since 2006 now and just can't go to gassers. I love the driveability and economy too much. Even though I know it doesn't always make fiscal sense to go diesel, I just like em!

Same here... I am at a point in my life that I don't really care if some thing makes "Fiscal" sense anymore or not. If I want it and it harms no one else, I get it. I have worked and saved all my life to enjoy a little bit of retirement....
3 Things to remember... Another day is never promised.... You can't take it with you... and.... If you don't spend it, your kids will.....
