    The little yard I work out of getting 7 out of the 100 new Freightliners just delivered to Memphis, Boss told me three drivers here don't want one so good chance for me. The old rattle trap I'm driving now has 860,000 mi. wish me luck!

    I'll do my best to take of it, I appreciate good equipment after driving an old truck.
    If I get one will nick name it "Miss Squatchy"

    Lol good luck with it being good. My dad has a 13 and it in the shop about every 2 months, the whole fleet has problems. They don't have the def system very well figured out yet

    The last OTR company I worked for several trucks including mine broke all over last winter with frozen DEF systems , the heater wrap quit working -0 deg. It stayed in the shop Minneapolis for month while Cummins and Volvo argued who was responsible for warranty

    - - - Updated - - -

    It may go to million and have driven trucks 1,000,000+ mi. in better shape than rattle trap plus it has worn auto trans that really gets on my nerve

    old truck was in shop for a week for new clutch and wiring harness for the auto trans, got it back and drove 80 miles and broke again. My Boss got on the phone and ruffled some feathers and finally have a new truck , Ill name it Lil Squatchy after Squatchy suffering with his broke back.

    Well Lil Squatchy Made it to 1058 miles till two check engine lights came on and power reduced 25%. Engine code for emissions will be a few days in the shop. Had to take it to Freightliner and picked another truck that was in the shop to drive. Turns out it was a new sleeper with 1360 miles, called my dispatcher he called the boss and I get to keep it.
