Re: 85'000 vehicles in toto?

Maybe, but the more improtant (political) point is that its 85,000 cars that aren't from good ole USofA manufacturers and bigging up the emissions violations they can kill any growth in the currently tiny diesel US car market for the foreseeable future which is only being addressed by European imports.

Was recently in California (n.b.Bay Area air quality spokesperson said that current major cause of low air quality is wood burning stoves) and heard a surprising balanced news item where "expert" giving opinion basically said the real problem was Europe had concentrated on global warming and thus considered CO2 as item to reduce while in US they were concentrated on air quality so NOx was the big deal.
