Yea, but he mentioned it'd be his last vechicle, wouldn't you want a v/8 grunt car for your last one? I would.

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....

RAF_S197 I wish Ford would offer a diesel Focus. GM has the right idea with the Cruz

NeoVeNoM I know that in the US there are a lot of misconceptions about diesels. but they can be quite the power houses especially in the torque range.
Also ecu tuning is big in the EU. I have 320nm of torque which is about 236 pound foot. not bad for 1.6 engine.

No, if I was looking for a commuter car without any fun... why not just buy the more comfortable and better looking Chevy cruse diesel at the same price?
i'm boycotting GM and Chrysler. Ford also has more experience with small diesels.

You could say that. Here in Belgium up to 65% of the new cars are diesel this year. I think it has been over 50% the past decade.
A diesel is far from the tractor it used to be.
