hi ... i am planing to buy freightliner day cab with mercedes engine please i am new to this ... expert advice me in this ..is it good or bad ???...
freightliner with mercedes engine
md engines are cheaper for a reason
some have luck with them some dont--make sure all the recall updates have been done--they like to catch fire if not done
i was definately advised against them--but i am sure somebody could tell you their good points
Engine is light,and the displacement is bigger than other engines of different makes with similar weights.
Like was said, make sure recall updates were done. They tend to break down, but so does anything mechanical. I had one go bad and drove it home on a local run. Check engine light didn't come on. Fluids were ok, but something went in the head.
Most work must be done by a dealership as parts are captive compared to most of the other engines.
I found a good deal on some freightliners with the Mercedes 12.8L 455 hp MBE 4000 he has 5 trucks under 600,000 miles for $14,000 all are 05-06
one has a bad cam for $5,000
So anyone else?
