Question of the Day: Would you consider buying diesel over gasoline?

Diesels are slowly starting to get popular in the United States, with German automakers leading the front with diesel variants of their most popular gasoline models.

Of course there are some obvious benefits to diesel over gasoline, including the increase in fuel-economy, a boost in torque and the final price differential over gasoline models is generally much smaller than that for hybrids. Nonetheless, diesel fuel is a bit pricier than gasoline, which may be the reason why Americans still seem to be a bit hesitant about purchasing them.

So we figured we’d ask you guys whether or not you would consider buying a diesel over a gasoline model? If yes, then which one? Some choices you have include the 2010 Volkswagen Golf TDI, 2010 Volkswagen Jetta TDI, 2010 Volkswagen Touareg TDI, BMW 335d, BMW X5 xDrive35d, 2010 Mercedes-Benz ML350 BlueTEC, 2010 Mercedes-Benz GL350 BlueTEC, 2010 Mercedes-Benz R350 BlueTEC, Audi A3 TDI and the Audi Q7 TDI.
