    Any trucking company who operates a fleet of penske trucks is no good. Penske lease does poor job on truck service.

    I have witnessed trucks go 100k miles with no service done, no oil change or preventive maintenance!?!?!

    Once again, beware of trucking companies and the penske lease.

    Especially as it's not really Penske's fault the company doesn't take the truck in for service.
    Don't get me wrong, I'm not a fan of Penske's parts changers (at least that's all they are at the local shop) but there is only so much Penske can do.

    The problem is the owner of stupid trucking company decides to lease 50 to 100 penske units and has no clue how to wrench a truck, or any equipment.

    I have some experience under my belt.

    You won't believe the work I've seen on some of the penske company trucks out there.

    I'm upset over some previous employers I've worked for. They were breaking lease terms, not taking truck in for service. Request for truck to be fixed not solved.

    There is a penske service center in Phoenix Arizona. They do a good job, always busy fixing trucks, doing maintenance and staying up to date...and then there are penske service in other location, horrible job!

    Now in post # 1, you said....
    Now you're saying Penske does a good job. Which is it?

    That's probably why they went with a lease company like Penske, or Ryder. It ain't the lease company's fault, if the owner has no clue on how to wrench. It's as much on the company as it is on Penske to see the trucks are serviced, and problems fixed.
    The Penske location's I'm familiar with did an OK job, not outstanding, not horrible. Maintenance was always done, but other writeups were always hit or miss.

    So is the OP reporting that Penske .. it's self is a bad company ??
    Or is he saying every Trucking company that leases from Penske is bad ?
    Or is he saying Penske trucks are a POS & Every Company that's leases from them are run by stupid people ???
    Or did he just start this thread because the company he worked (which he hasn't named ) for had a stupid boss & leased trucks from Penske.. and he had a bad experience so now he's all pissed off at the world
    I need a road map to follow the direction the OP is headed but he just keeps circling the camp fire
