Truck is now on route to repair shop 12,000km on a new truck and this will be the 4th time it’s been in for repairs. I’d bought a new truck to avoid the constant grief of a used one, and am having worse luck with this. Very disappointed. For every 10km on the road hauling, 1 of those kilometres is from bob tailing to dealership
Yikes! As I started reading that I thought to myself that since you bought it you would be trouble free now, but clearly not the case. Often get fertilizer delivered by a fleet that runs a lot of Mexiliners and it sounded to me like most of issues were related to emissions. Sounds like you got a lemon so far, hope that improves. Warranty is a small comfort when your machine is in the shop...
