2012 VW Tiguan 2.0 TSI SEL Premium Nav
2012 VW Passat TDI SEL Premium w/rear lid spoiler
That Passat 22% take rate is based on the breakdown of cars they're producing. The demand for TDI's are much higher I'm assuming.
CURRENT: 2012 VW Passat 2.5 SEL Premium

It certainly doesn't help push diesel's into the market when VW is offering their best financing rates on GAS engines. 0%? 0.9%? Absolutely those are great rates... but they're not applicable to TDI's. The rate on TDI's is 3%, 3.9%, 4.9% or higher.
If VW truly wants to push diesels into the American market, they'll consistently incentivize buyers with attractive financing rates.
seriously when have you EVER heard somebody say that other than yourself? it's not that i don't agree with you, i just think it's funny that it's now a "saying". i must have missed that meeting.
