Diesels In The United States Of America

9 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

UPDATED: I have been keeping track as best I can of Canadian market smart cdis that have been sold into the USA. In spring 2012 I checked all 450s for location in the National Vehicle Database, and since then I have been watching eBay for new ones. smartsellerrob on eBay has been the most prolific importer that I know of, with about 40 cars sold there by him up to now.

Here are the serial numbers of all 85 450 cdis that I know to be in the USA:

Today's total is 99 diesels in the USA...at least the ones I know about by VIN. There are undoubtedly a few more.
