    Question Would you order a Diesel for your next Volvo if available?

    I'm going to forward the poll results to Volvo once compiled...

    diesels are so much better for big, heavy suvs. 30+ mpg, great towing torque, and now they are just as clean... did i mention 30+mpg! I drive my friend's ml320 cdi rather often, and it is fantastic on gas. My 2.5t xc90 is also nice, but the ml's diesel power is much better. I also drove a few other diesel Suvs in europe like the Santa Fe Diesel, the Skoda diesel, and they are all amazingly fuel efficient.

    Here in the UK we don't get a choice - if its an XC90 its a diesel!!

    I have to agree. There are times that we don't have no choice. Diesel is cheaper but I don't like how cars perform with it.
