    i stopped buying myself a diesel company truck. i couldnt justify spending the extra $$$ on the engine. it never made sense once i figured it out, yeah it got better gas mileage, but the cost of the engine pretty much washed out the lower cost of the gas engine and lower mpg's.

    Real diesels only have 6 cylinders.

    The comments are hostile in that article. Lol so much arguing. I like the fords the most, drive a turbo diesel chevy when I was an officer up in Alaska in the wildlife department. Was severely lacking. Older truck though.

    The lawsuit against GM is a class action suit, not an EPA or DOJ suit. The suit against FCA is a DOJ(Department of Justice) suit.

    The class action suit about the Duramax follows a class action suit last year about the Cruze,

    http://www.detroitnews.com/story/bu...otors/2017/05/25/gm-diesel-lawsuit/102144038/

    "Last year, the same firm law firm — Seattle-based Hagens Berman — targeted GM over its Cruze Diesel, charging the automaker with using software to produce lower emission readings during testing. In February, a judge dismissed a portion of that suit, but allowed it to move forward with allegations of deceptive advertising and fraudulent concealment."

    Looks like a bunch of lawyers looking to make a bunch of money.

    How they can possibly argue that these systems hurt the consumer is beyond me. Don't people pay lots of money for kits that specifically do what GM and others are accused of doing? Does anybody really care if the manufacturers build-in bypass systems? Seriously, people need to chill and stop trying to get rich quick. It's more sickening that the emissions they claim are coming out of their vehicles...
