    It's free for the first half hour, peak usage makes it almost unusable at times but it does work most times. I'm not sure how much it costs after that.

    Freightliner Dealerships have free wi-fi anywhere I have checked.

    No sir, Your mistaken about that. Triad, Freightliner, in Greensboro, North Carolina, does not have any type of wireless feed. There are a few more I've been to also, that are the same. There's one just north of Dupont, Pa. I forgot the name of the town, but they don't have it. Neither does the one in Jeffersonville, Indiana. I know for a fact, that if you are not plugged into the wall, in any of these dealerships, you aren't getting on line, no matter what you try. I've been stuck at every one of these places, at some point or another, just in the past few months alone, for some reason or another. I've never been able to connect to anything when I was at any of them. Unless I asked a sales person, to loan me one of the vacant desks, and plugged my 'Puter directly into the wall.
    I had a Broadband card, for a little while, but it broke, and I've been to busy to send it back for a new one.

    Just a little FYI..: FLT, GIVES NOTHING FREE.

    So help them if they ever offer anything for free. Aside from poor workmanship, and generally, poor business practices, and attitudes. I own a fleet, and deal with a lot of FLT dealers..They are a waste, and one worse than the other. Sometimes though, you don't exactly have a choice, but to go to the dealer.

    Thumbs up So don't buy Freightliner?

    Hey there. So if I catch your drift, you're implying that Freightliner isn't gonna be a good purchase when customer service and repairs are concerned?

    Interested in the subject. I have driven F.L.'s columbia and will be driving a century class soon. But I also have some experience in a couple of old Pete's.

    Seems to me that KW is the way to go. But I'll let you weigh in.

    Thanks

    Do you mean the Hopi Travel Plaza (Conoco) at exit 292 on I-40 in Holbrook, AZ? I was there the other night, parked on the row closest to the west end of the building, and couldn't get a signal. I stopped there for the night because my truck stop guide said they had wi-fi....

    Sadly he is right, some dealerships in some areas do but definitely not all, the first three dealerships I was stuck at did have it, Laredo, TX, Morton, IL, and Knoxville, TN, I thought did, but not sure about that one. I don't remember if the one in Indy had it or not, there was lots going on there and I didn't bother with my laptop even though I had it there.

    Truck Country does not have free Wi-Fi, they do have Wi-Fi but wouldn't acknowledge having it.

    The general consensus is that Kenworth has the best dealerships overall, but if you buy a used Kenworth with a Detroit diesel, you'd best be prepared to get the engine work done where they have the parts and service. If you need service and the dealer sucks, there are independent shops that do service work and repairs, there are also some FL dealerships I like, Harrison by Waterloo IA, and River States north of Lacrosse, WI are two. Cat engines are best serviced by Cat dealers. We have a Cat dealer in northeast Iowa, about 20 miles from here.
