If I may stray from the topic, are diesels banned in the US? Is there a special kind of permit to own a diesel car?

No, we've had them here for decades - Mercedes Benz, VW, some others. I think it's just that back in the day, our locally-made gas-fueled vehicles became so tightly woven into American culture that there wasn't enough of a market for many diesel-fueled cars, and apart from a few brands it just sort of stayed that way. I don't have another/better explanation, but someone else who knows more than I know might.

No, they're just not popular here in passenger vehicles.

Manual transmissions, wagons, and heavy metal are awesome. Zoom-Zoom \m/

I think that's a good price

My circumstances were a bit different last year when I got my 17.

The CPO is such a plus, my dealership is great about covering items.

To the OP, my mazda6 is the nicest car I had to buy myself too. Nothing wrong with that..in fact, a few coworkers are leasing a BMW 3 series and Audi A4.

With a third of their monthly payments, I think I have the best bang for my buck.
