Don't blame it all on GM, most people didn't like the smell of diesel and the slugishness of the older diesels, and then there was the noise.

It didn't appeal to everone.

And about CARB.......bunch of extremists. Like I said a little enviromentalism is a good thing, but they take things WAY TOO FAR. And the 3 other states???????? Libreal strongholds......does that tell you anything.
