    One would think that after 20 years and 3 different motor versions.

    They'd have their crap figured out by now.

    NOPE.

    And this one only has 180k miles.

    Oh please, leaking oil is a trucking thing, if it ain't leaking, you ain't a super trucker. You can not sit at the lunch counter with any pride unless your engine dumps a gallon while it is at the fuel aisle when you are eating.

    Except this one has been a common problem and it ruins the brakes.

    BTW. What I'm driving now doesn't loose a drop. At 700k

    OK how does an engine ruin brakes?

    Nope, having a great day.

    My dry and sarcastic humor may not be understood.

    Wish I had known this before going and changing a wheel seal when oil on brakes was found. The real issue is coming from oil leaking out the engine!

    Learn something new every day.

    If it's leaking that means it has oil in it...
