    Am considering buying one of Meltons uses trucks. Anyone who drove a 2017 automatic FL cascadia midroof know what kind of maintenece schedule they adhered to on the truck? They all seem to come with APUs, is that standard Melton?

    I would demand to see maintenance history on it..if they refuse...that in my opinion would be suspicious because it could be they’re hiding problem..big ones

    Melton may be trying to thin their trucks out. I pass by their yard at Masury/ Sharon Pa. often. Counted like 14 trucks sitting there. Like already mentioned get service records, and look the truck over. Always a gamble buying a truck..even a new one.

    They retire them at 4 years on the dot.
    Annual is done every year. B maintenance twice a year, and a fluid check-up every quarter. These are all hard-appointment. They do get done.

    Everything gets fixed that the DRIVER writes up as well.
    Melton takes pretty good care of their trucks.
