pintoman Yes, Ford has made great diesels and now they are not much noisier than the Focus 2.0L ...and definitely better on fuel mileage.

I agree with you 100% but your average consumer trying to save money will take the plunge at least have a different option than a VW or Chevy Cruise

Any vehicle could be one's last. Hell, my next slice of apple pie could be my last!

sailor Wonder how good the "real world" mileage might be...

My current Focus gets high 30's on the road, won't quite get 30 in mixed driving around town.

Back when VW brought in the first diesel Rabbits, and they got 50 on the road, folks would crank LOTS of miles on them 'cause it was cheap to do so. I've heard current diesels do that well, even if not RATED that high - It'd be nice not to calculate fuel costs B4 considering every trip....
