    harsh but the blunt reality! ofcourse diesel owners will disagree but statistics don't lie :Whistle:

    I recall that type of workshops in the early 1990's the then Honda slogan was "Innovation and Satisfaction" now we know it as Power of Dreams.

    so the slogan rang true for all Petrol owners, we all know what the diesel owners like to dream off = Honda reliability :Search:

    In trying to make diesels perform like petrols, they have engineered out the reliability a diesel used to have.

    They should have been trying to make petrols as economical as diesel (which they are starting to do now).

    Dirty, noisy with carcinogenic fumes, diesels should be banned, especially in urban areas.

    The Honda diesel is reliable enough it's the German tut that's attached to it that isn't.
    It certainly ain't dirty and noisy either. that only tends to happen when some idiot with a laptop uploads some dodgy remap to it. :Wink:

    Well put Rob

    Petrol is also a cancer creating monster petrol owners dwell on that next time you are filling up breathing that rich unleaded aroma.

    True though diesel particles are not good news thats why Audi married their popular PD engines to there ever so nice convertible cars.

    I agree with Rob Honda even this early 7th Generation engine is far better than the German crop.

    Petrol engines for me at least for now are far too thirsty plus I quite enjoy the torque :Smile:

    I recon there are some real and viable alternatives about but the oil giants won't like them none to much.

    Not arguing just light hearted banter :Smile: that's one of the nice things about this site freedom of speech without the crushing might of the overbearing moderator ( like some other sites ) :Smile: its all good and on the whole peoples view are respected as it should be.

    The petrol guys and girls are mainly right about diesel reliability (except CJ that is sorry love you really dude :Smile:) across all manufactures at the moment and it is very true to state reliability has been taken out of diesels in the never ending quest for performance just look at VW ! I still stand by diesels well for me at least, that said if petrol could come close to the economy and tax bracket for like for like pergormace I would probably defect possibly may be :Smile: All good fun bud. Keep it light keep it real and hey Black opps 2 out soon.. :Smile: Life just keeps getting better

    All good things :Wink:
