Diesel Cars Now

This is a website about diesel cars including VW diesel cars and those from other makers such as Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Chevy, GMC and Dodge. Some of the cars on this review website run on biodiesel, some are automatics, some have standard transmissions and none are actually related to Vin Diesel (though we think he's a pretty cool action hero).

Diesel Car
Modern Diesel Car

The diesel cars from the last two or three years are not the diesel vehicle your grand pappy used to drive in his alternative hippy days, smoking the weed and singing Kumbaya My Lord. No, today's diesel engines are not the smoke belching ones we used to see on city buses, long-haul trucks and freight trains.

This is especially true for diesel cars. Today's automakers have cleaned up their acts in regard to environmentalism and creating clean diesel, low emissions vehicles. Some have done this with the help of the oil companies (gulp) who are actually producing cleaner diesel fuel, using hydrogen and other chemicals to desulphur what we put into our automobiles.

And, now the car companies have stepped in going one stride further in cleaning what comes out the tailpipe. Some of the manufacturers of diesel cars will use a special fluid to clean the exhaust on the way out of the vehicle. Other carmakers have chosen a catalytic method of dealing with diesel emissions.

Slow to React ...

But, the facts are in that today's diesel cars are not only cleaner than those of yesteryear but they are in large part, even cleaner than most of the gasoline powered vehicles we have on the road. The problem is that the American public is slow to hear about this and react.

Europeans have been buying and driving diesel cars for years. Many of the American car manufacturers sell diesel cars in other countries that are not available in the U. S. because they think there is no market here.

Some of the carmakers say hybrids are happening here and are hot right now so why go in a different direction. But, why can't we have both? This would surely be cleaner and consume less fuel.

Well, some of the automakers are all over this. For instance, the Volvo V60 Diesel Plug-in Hybrid, Peugeot 3008 Hybrid 4 and Mercedes E 300 BlueTEC Hybrid have already made appearances at the major car shows and it's just a matter of time until they hit the showroom floors.

Biodiesel car
Yet, there are still hybrid detractors who worry about how the batteries are made and how we dispose of them after they are used up. They simply want clean burning diesel cars and be done with it. Or they prefer biodiesel cars. Well, this site is about diesel cars, hybrid or not, biodiesel or not.

Just read some of our reviews and if you'd like to pipe in and send us an email or even a few pictures of your diesel cars that will also be appreciated.
