    Hello
    I always ran Freightliner trucks and I am looking into buying my first volvo truck. I'm looking for an advice on what year or model to stay away. So far my search run around 15 to 16 possibly 17 vnl630 with Ishift with less than 600k. Please advise on pros and cons. Thank you.

    Get a warranty, and make sure it covers that I-shift, and emission system. Those things are very expensive to repair, and some warranties don't cover them. Read closely, many say "oil lubricated parts" electronics are not oil lubricated! I spent $20k in the last 5 months on my emissions. 2016 VNL with D13, 10spd, 520k.

    What did you end up replacing?
