Re: 2014 diesel production

It looks like 44mpg is on the EU cycle. Translated to US would probably be at 36mpg give or take. Still not bad for a vehicle that size

Re: GC Diesel vs. V6 vs. V8 vs. Touareg TDI

The Motor Trend article states that the CRD 0-60 is 7.8 seconds which is 0.4 seconds faster than 8.2. If it were 0.4 seconds slower then it would be 8.6 seconds.

Re: Did I make a mistake ordering a 2012?

The ELSD comes with the V8 AND the ORAII package. If you ordered the ORAII package then you are fine. It no longer comes with just the V8 like it did in the 2011 model year
