Reviewer Comments I’ve switched over to automatics and if the divers will leave them alone and let them shift out around 1,500 rpm, they do just great.

We bought six of them a year ago and our drivers love them. They like the room in the cab and tell me they are very comfortable trucks. So they’re doing a decent job for us out there.

Fuel economy is very good. I’ve switched over to automatics now and if the divers will leave them alone and let them shift out around 1,500 rpm, they do just great. We’re a pneumatic carrier, but we’re still getting better than 6 mpg on these trucks.

Maintenance issues have been minimal. We’ve had some engine work done. But must issues have been minor things with a sensor going out. But we’re getting good dealer support when anything goes wrong. I’ve been real tickled with the truck, to be honest with you.

75-truck tank fleet in Northeast

Reviewer Comments There’s a good amount of room in the cab. The drivers like that.

We’re running a dozen of them and they’re doing pretty good. Now, we made some changes to the spec when we bought them – we were running heavy rears and things like that. So we went to a lighter spec and an 18-inch shorter wheelbase. So it’s a new truck for us in more ways than one. But they’re doing very well. The headlights on them are fantastic, I’ll tell you that. And I really like the hood-assist feature.

There’s a good amount of room in the cab. The drivers like that. I’d like to see a little bit more small-item storage space. We spec the storage box under the passenger seat. And that works OK. But it’s not really very handy. But overall, we’re getting really good dealer support and the drivers really like them.

Reviewer Comments It’s a good truck from my perspective. We’re running the Cummins in it.

We bought 60 of them last year and they’re doing all right. They get good fuel economy. We came out of Volvos. And some of the drivers like the T680 and others hate it. In fact, I have a list of driver complaints right here: He says the windshield and the mirrors are too small, the cupholder is down too low and a danger, and there’s a blind spot between the upper and lower rear-view mirror. And I hear the cab is too narrow, they have a hard time getting in and out of the bunk. And they tell me the turning radius isn’t as tight as the Volvo. But you know the difference between a 4-week old puppy and a truck driver? In another two weeks, the puppy’s gonna quit whining!

But it’s a good truck from my perspective. We’re running the Cummins in it. And outside of a few aberrations with the regen and the Jake Brake not working properly it’s done fine for us. You really have to tweak the parameters on the truck. We run in Tennessee under 42,0000 pounds, and if you don’t set them just right you can have a problem pulling some of those grades. But, overall, it’s a good truck.
