This is what was posted on another forum in regards to the MB engines:
"What I heard is the Mercedes engines have a software problem in trying to meet '07 emmissions. Apparently none have been delivered to FL since the first of the year. So FL is using Cummins ISC 360 to replace it in production. Maybe this is now a permanent change."
If that is the case, then I would think that they can get the problem solved with the software and get the engine certified for the new '07 emission standards, but maybe not.
Personally, I think that I would just want them to "buy back" my coach and I would get another. After all, some of us buy a certain chassis/coach combination for the engine.
Guess we will have to wait and see what the "official" word is from FL.
Sure glad I have a CAT!!
Anyone here have a Freightliner with a MB engine built after Jan. 1st 2007 when the new regulations went into effect??
I would think that would be the only ones effected.
