70-truck fleet on West Coast

Reviewer Comments My driver had a Freightliner before this truck. He agreed to give this one a try and really likes it.

The truck is OK. We’ve had a lot of problems with the engine. I’d rather have had the Cummins – but that was a decision made out of our home office. The dealer gave us an oil consumption log to track the amount of oil that’s going through the engine. We’re adding 6 gallons every 15,000 miles. So that’s not good. But, that’s an engine issue. Like I said, the truck itself is OK.

Only bad thing are the shear pins on the rear axle spring hanger: We started going through tires really badly because of a problem there. We just got it back from the dealer. It’s got 130,000 miles on it – so of course it was out of warranty.

My dealer support is really good. I’ve known them for years. They do a good job.

Reviewer Comments We’re looking around a little. But these are still really good trucks. My drivers like them fine.

The truck is OK. We’ve been dating a long time. We went with them years ago because they were sort of leading with design and technology then. And frankly it’s hard to leave when you’ve been with one brand like that for so long. But, they’re as good as any truck out there – Volvo, I think is maybe a bit more tweaked out. And you could put a VW badge on a Peterbilt and guys would rush out to buy it. We’re looking around a little. But these are still really good trucks. My drivers like them fine.

The MaxxForce engines were a big problem, though. It got really bad for us. We finally switched over to Cummins and those engines have been great.

REVIEWER COMMENTS

It’s a great truck. We have around 80 of them and find them to be very quiet, smooth with plenty of room in the cab and sleeper. We run the MaxxForce 13 in that truck, and that’s a very lightweight setup, which we like a lot. The drivers are very happy with them as well.

We had to get them updated with the latest codes and whatnot. But once we did, they run great. The fuel economy is very good, too. Depending on the route and the trailer, we’re seeing fuel economy ranging from 6.5 mpg up to 7.5 mpg.
