    Can anyone give me some feedback on the Cat CT range of trucks?

    As far as I remember they did sell well at all, but I haven't heard anything about reliability, etc.

    Do the bodies, chassis, etc wear like a Kenworth - 2m km isn't an issue or are they ####ed after 500,000km like a modern Mack?

    Cheers,
    Dave.

    I heard they are not reliable. There was one running around here but haven't seen it lately.

    You're all so positive! haha

    I suspected they were a no go... I'd be interested to hear some first hand experiences, if there is any!

    Cat motors are great as far as the Cat brand of trucks I rarely see any out on the highway which pretty much says it all people always speak with their check books and by all accounts KW, Macks and Western Stars still rule the roads.
