Shawn Wright and all : I have followed this discussion for some time now and being a HONDA fan and diesel type ...--- may I make a few remarks.? To design and prove a good Diesel for a car is a very costly affair. . Look at Volvo they have one of the best diesel design teams in the world --BUT they are using the VW design. and now the Japanese are doing the same thing --sorry I forgot the make Toyota ---why ? . Simple economics.-----like I said for a long time --the first day I took a VW 1.5L NA completely to pieces ? WOW what a design. It is a masterpiece if ever there was one.---- I get in troubles up here in REAL diesel land --when I mention a diesel without sleeves. ---Those REAL diesel mechanics call them throw away diesels . I thought they were going to throw me away ---from the local watering hole.When I mentioned that I own a Lister ---they said I could stay. I agree with those who said lets wait and see for a while ----let the Honda prove it got the Wright stuff. The VW Lupo is well proven design by now---and it is Aluminium ATMI ----and it sure get the Smileage. I talk to a guy in Copenhagen just about every day, who owns one --got it brand new. He is tickled pink with it. The curse of diesels ? ---its weight. ---- I like the VW --as fragile as it is ---a GOOD operator can make them sing. Look at Val Christian --he kept them going from 977 --probably the first sold in - in --Entire State. We get them cheap (old Rabbits) in part due to the book Lemon-Aid.---- My dream is to take one right across North Amerika -----I just watched the Amerikan Vacation (Lampoon version) Griswald goes to Wallyworld LA from Chicago.---makes me wanna go. That is my LAST will ---Lord let me go. Hagar.
