I just made the transition myself, I like to call it an upgrade (left the quotes out this time). In my research on this thing I read a few posts on different forums that sounded like there were a lot of converts from VW TDI to Jeep CRD, how many more are out there? I know geordi is also one but I'm pretty sure he's not talking to me for a while, if ever...

I'm a "convert" in the sense that I was going to buy a TDI, but then stumbled across a CRD at a good price and bought it. My interest in the TDI sold me on diesels, then my CRD made me a convert.

What's up with you and geordi?

Oh we had a lil keyboard spat about one of my posts, first one of my posts on the forum actually, not really worth rehashing. Interesting story about you ending up in a CRD. I just watched my golf drive away last night, a gentleman from Arizona flew up here and bought it, now he's driving back. Miss the mileage but am looking forward to getting off the road with the CRD.

My understanding was that the VW's were in the shop more often than their German reputation suggested. :2cents:

Let's hope that's the case, my VW wasn't too bad, but sure more than I'd liked. Going on 3 weeks now with the CRD with smooth sailing...

i AM a convert!

Had a 2010 Audi A3 TDi with the DSG tranny. In stock form best I got was 58mpg on flat-ish freeway. Best road trip car ever and scooted up San Francisco's steep grades with ease.

I'll take a TDi Touareg or Cayenne next please... but definitely keeping this CRD. It's a little beast.
