    I don't think they keep them all the way to 500000 miles anymore. Since they been swapping fro the 670 models to the 760 models it seems like they're getting rid of the trucks a lot sooner. The owner has a buyer already lined up that buys all the used trucks. From what i was led to believe is that as soon as they are paid off an the warranty is about to expire then they get sold down the road. Which doesn't make sense to me but that's all way above my pay grade. Another thing is i rarely if ever seen any trucks havin to go to volvo for warranty work.

    I could see that. These trucks driver very well, they are definitely better maintained than this small company I was at that had volvos. I was in 1020 and I had got that truck up to about 420000 miles. Its available now I believe. They fixed it up quick

    I'd imagine that it'd be about to be sold off. It seems odd that we have any 670's left. Seems like they'd all have enough miles on em to be sold off by now.

    Many if them are just breaking 300000 miles, mine just did, and there's another driver who was in orientation with me, I think he has 330000 on his. It's a pretty decent number of 670s running around. The one I'm in is a 2017 model so it isn't super old. I imagine they'll get at least another year out of this one

    Yea could be. It just seems weird that some of the newer trucks have already been sold off while we still have 670's still around. Like 1098 that we just got out of , it sounded like they're gonna get rid of it and it only had 270000 miles.

    I heard that!! I went back the 26th. I dropped off a Hershey load yesterday in Weatherford, TX. Now I'm running a Coke load from Waco back up to Wright City. I have to go by the yard once I move one of the dry vans from Coke to Silgan. I felt that was coming since it's been a while from the last I went by the terminal.

    So far so good bro!!! I have yet to find any major flaw with these folks. They keep me busy, and I dont even get burned out as easily as I have in the past....I think I'll stay around for awhile. How do you like it?
