Fleet Managers Discuss Truck Concerns at TMC’s Fleet Talk

Truckinginfo.com - October 4, 2011

Fleet man­agers attend­ing the recent Tech­nol­o­gy & Main­te­nance Council’s Fall Meet­ing com­plained about truck engines and their relat­ed prob­lems. Engine fail­ure, often with brand new heavy-duty engines, was cit­ed by sev­er­al meet­ing par­tic­i­pants. Issues includ­ed deal­ers with untrained tech­ni­cians who often do not have the prop­er tools to work on the lat­est prod­ucts. Some trucks sit on deal­ers’ lots for sev­er­al days before techs can look at them, repair, and get them back on the road.
