    If it's mechanically sound, you'll love that truck.

    the only downside is if it has Volvo D13, if it is make sure it has the new style injector cups...... if it still has the old style you will had a breakdown......not if but when. the injector cups is the reason usx stopped getting Volvo's every 08 Volvo had bad cups EVERYONE (would go out every 75k-100k) Volvo changed the style and that fixed it but I don't know when they did so check.... the dealer will know if it was done..... I also know they had a problem with the flex pipe going from the turbo to the DPF, they would burn out.(our 08 did it every 30K) when they do you will know because you will smell diesel in the cab when it does a regen..... I know this was also fixed so just keep it in mind....... other than that it should be a great truck

    PTL might let you drive for them. Of course the downside it's that you'd be driving for PTL.
