    Some would think , Sam is a Paccar PR rep. He has posted nice things about his truck. And how happy he was the first few days! Almost like a kid waiting for Christmas , waiting for it to arrive at the dealer! Posted pics of his new ride! Till it showed its true colors, he loved his new truck! Truly wish he can get all this fixed! But he may never be made whole! Lost wages/earnings ,the major hit to his customer service record. He got a lemon, and Paccar should have steped up and fixed everything , or replaced the truck. Or refund the price.

    Yup, that was me on my way to Belvidere IL. I can not really recall if I saw you, however still I look every T680 on the road and from now, I will check on you. But it would be easier, if I saw a picture of your truck.... But some people here slower to post picture of the new ride, then me.:biggrin_25526:

    That should be covered under warranty for the first year. It was on my T800

    You need to return that truck, now. Call your state and find out what the Lemon Law is.

    I agree. I am clearly unhappy with the issues what I have had, but they come as it was brand new, no new ones since.... And I did not break down at all. (Knock-knock-knock)

    IIRC, 'lemon laws' only protect retail consumers. They don't apply to commercial vehicles.
