    Been driving a 2014 Cascadia 5 years now. The auto transmission and DEF system were junk,,,only a major carrier could foot the bill with how many times this POS been towed or shop time. At a bout 700KM they seem to have the bugs out, has 1.2 Million Km now.
    I like the truck, so what if its uglier than a bag of bungholes, its more driver friendly than the 2020 Macks or Coronado’s offered to me as a replacement. I had drivers seat changed before I would accept the truck,,,factory supplied seats were junk.
    As good as the auto works I would opt for a manual transmission to avoid mega shop charges

    Lol No, it really is good to hear. I mean I wouldnt mind that at all for a truck that has 900k miles. I bought my Volvo used with 440k miles. It has 900 now and I’v changed a bunch of stuff.

    I love my 2017 Cascadia. It has a DD13 but will cruise along 70 mph at 1,400 rpms. It has plenty of power for what I do. Has lifetime fuel mileage of 7.5 from pulling tanker most of its life before I bought it.
