Very Interesting. We need more smaller diesel cars all over the place. I like some of their thinking too. Chris

So Honda is going to beat Toyota, that's to bad I guess.

I keep reading about the particulate filters they are installing on these things, what happens after they are full? Replace a more than likely very expensive filter? I'm all for effeciancy and clean air but cha ching... They have yet to address this from what I've read.

Still cool.
