    Members Etch and Coastie bought a truck from them. I dealt with them when my friend purchased a ex US Express columbia from them. Very pleasant people to deal with.

    I think he doesn't know that. But good dealership if something on the truck needs to be replaced get it done while the truck is still in there hands. Im not sure if there dot ready but some of those trucks have been sitting there for a while. Another thing before you even sign the papers on the truck take a good look check everything on the truck.

    They are required to be DOT'd before they leave the lot.

    So you can leave there lot and something is wrong with that truck. No way id rather have someone look over the truck instead of them looking at it they want those truck's gone and not everyone in the world plays by the rules so you never know if they might just skip a few things.

    Depending on whether or not its a twin turbo ACERT, I'd suspect a Classic XL with a C15 to be somewhere in the area of 5-5.6 mpg if twin turbo, and slightly more if not.

    Ymmv, gearing, tires, engine settings and a whole bunch of other factors play in here. A 435hp C15 seems pretty choked to me, isn't that the C12's usual rating?

    now Ive watched arrow trucks grow over the years i remember when they were a small outfit with a bunch of junk trucks in Houston along side I 10 they have grown quite a bit , now they have some pretty decent trucks and they say the are the bank what that means i have no idea.

    but now days there easy to deal with got some decent trucks and there a little bit easier to get financed then most , but i would still check over what ever truck i was looking at real close and a DOT inspection means very little , just be careful.

    best of luck , ---southernpride
