    Do the same lemon laws apply to trucks as they do to cars? It sure sounds like you got one!

    Our company trucks are also having issues.
    T660's with Cummins.
    Dealers not having parts in stock, waiting around for diagnostics, and so on. Better than the '09 Cats they replaced though so I hear.
    I should be getting a new 09 WS this week if the deal is right. dealer got landed with it in 2010 and couldn't sell it at regular price so it is heavily discounted now. I am hoping that 2009 emissions (S60, EGR and DPF only) will be less trouble than the new stuff.
    I hope they make this right with you.
    One thought, and I haven't read the whole thread, but if you financed through Pacar, I would be talking to a lawyer about a partial refund in payments made due to their product failing to perform. Just a thought.

    As much as people have banged on the MX in other threads, my company has not had hardly any problems with their '13 and '14's with the MX.

    Got it saturday from dealer,def/fuel was very low but no warning lights so the quantity sensors are working right
    Driving an air front susp truck does feel little weird.... Truck does have a lever for front clearance lights only that has to be flipped on to light up them, they wouldn't turn on by themselves when head lights are on...never seen that...
    Overall after 300mi all good....LoL
    Ultra shift+ felt good,fast , truck does not move when in drive/backup till accel pedal is depress....

    TOSKABG/ ORAM how are ur doing
     
    Zen Trucker Thanks this.
