I am a bit perplexed by a few things perhaps some of you on this forum can help me. Due to this fantastic new economy and it's amazing recovery I am forced to take a job that will involve a 119 mile roundtrip daily commute. Before anyone suggests that I relocate thanks to the housing market that is an impossibility for at least 5 years. Anyhow I digress, while researching fuel efficient cars available and their costs I found 20 vehicles that all get over 60 mpg, most were turbo diesels and all were available only in Europe, here in the US the best is 40 and that is a toyota prius. I would happily purchase a volkswagen polo TDI if only I could. Is there any sensible reason that anyone can explain to me why these automobiles are unavailable here in the USA, and why our own domestic manufactures cannot create a turbo diesel malibu or focus? Or is it at all possible or practical to have one of these European models shipped here or to buy one here? All comments are welcome and appreciated.
