Freightliner Trucks Problems
  • Emission issues on the Cascadia models and frequent break-downs.
  • Cascadia models were recalled due to an electrical issue that could cause a fire. 
  • Cascadia model is not fit for stop and go traffic.
  • Power and fuel economy issues.
  • Ash doesn’t burn, so it has to be mechanically removed from the DPF when it impedes exhaust flow. While thorough cleaning may result in better fuel economy and more miles, improper cleaning can compromise the filter’s life.
