Re: Just waiting for my toy
I didn't buy it for "return on investment". I bought it because I think it's the best compromise between fuel economy and power. LOVE the torque, happy I don't have to suffer with 17 MPG to get it. Love the low rpm, quiet power.
Truth is, I GET the advantages of the 8, but don't mistakenly feel the diesel doesn't have advantages (no spark plugs, low end torque for example) as well. That's why there are options.
Everyone should try all three and get the one that best suits their own needs and wants. You shouldn't assumes people buy the diesel for cost savings. That simply isn't true for everyone. Though I have to say the diesel wins that battle handily vs the Hemi, tougher argument vs the gas v6.
Oh, and my Ecodiesel is almost a year old with 13,500 miles and ZERO issues to date.
