It does run good though.
About 3 yrs ago I had a conversation with a man that used to manage an International dealership. I said to him "I see a lot of new internationals sitting on the side of the road". He said "Yes you do, the engines are junk", his words!

There are alotta moving companies in VA with the internationals. Lordy, I see alotta broken down brand new international moving trucks on the Dulles Toll road!

And yes, the Freightliners seem to be the better truck, mechanically. The Mercedes engines seem to be doing very well.
