PLEASE READ THIS WHOLE DESCRIPTION BEFORE COMMENTING!!. THIS WILL PISS YOU OFF, VW is not allowed by the US government to sell high milage cars to US consumers. VW even makes the cars here that get 78 mpg but must ship it over seas. I have added this link that shows a test drive world record with the passat which was 75 mpg US http://www.vehix.com/blog/most-popula... *****UPDATE**** I am still upset with myself for saying "THE CURRENT ADMINISTRATION"t. I understand that it is government regulations that crosses over all party lines. It was just that i had watch Obama talking about better milage cars and that was what upset me to make this video. Please understand I do not place the blame on him alone, this has been going on for decades. It seems this one poorly said statement has put off a lot of people to this message. and the wrong camera angle.

Balls,  VW and BMW and MBZ  can bring a diesel to the US market. Why can't Ford?  The point is Ford knows how to make a diesel car and that is what I want.  I don't care where the engines are made. I don't want to buy a VW.  I don't want to have to pay $40K to BMW in order to save on gas.   I want a cheap diesel offering from Ford just like they get to have in the UK.    Ford is great at offering multiple engines options for the same car.  Look at the mustang.

I know why it's going on but i tell ya what ticks me off even more, the fact that know one cares in the slightest, you just cannot get common sense through to people but i'm with ya pal.

Our fuel in the UK is not the same. It is 95octane which is much more potent that the fuel in the USA It's also much more expensive as it equates to about $9 per us gallon

Alternatively, the smaller Golf BlueMotion 1.6 TDI five-door uses exactly the same engine as the Passat BlueMotion but weighs 191kg less (about the same as two passengers and their luggage). As a result, it offers better straight-line performance than the Passat BlueMotion, but it returns even better economy (74.3mpg combined) and emits even less CO2 (99g/km). And it’s cheaper, too, at just £19,430. http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-review/volkswagen/passat/first-drives/volkswagen-passat-bluemotion-1.6-tdi

And BTW guys if you're really angry about this, just look up "TTIP". There is a good possibility that within 5-10 years most of these hyper-fuel efficient diesels will come to the US, when European and US emissions/ safety regulations are aligned and trade barriers get knocked down. I personally want a VW T6 Transporter 2.0 TDI 4 Motion. Awww yeah bitches

Good for you Brian, I am in the process of helping my AMERICAN mother in law buy a car in the states.. I live in Europe driving around in 60++MPG big cars and she cant get close to one.... Wake up AMERICA you need to stop letting them (your Government) treat you like kids and get it the way YOU want it....
Our legislators don't write laws, the lobbyists do. Detroit is a HUGE lobby. I'm not sure I believe that Detroit can't get laws passed that would allow them to sell more efficient vehicles if they wanted to do so.
