I'd have to look carefully at the price premium over the comparably equipped gas car. The VW TDI is like a $2,200 premium. Also the EPA combined ratings of the two and the current premium for diesel (it's like 40 cents now). As long as I wasn't too much worse off with the diesel after 5 years I'd jump on it just for the torque. Otherwise I'll stick with gas thank you very much. Man I sound like an old man. I'm not though...
