Help buying CC

Hi All,

We are looking at two CC's. One is 09 intrigue ovation 550 and the second one is 07 Affiniti

We hear comments about the engine problems on CAT and Cummins 600HP. We would like to hear more about good/bad, known issues and what to look for with these motorhomes.

Right now with have Cummins ISL 400 (non DEF) and never had a problem, not to mention 9MPG

Thanks!

Put the 650 ISX at the top of your list for "engine problems" and the 600 next!

Google Cat C-15 engines and you'll come up with multiple articles about Cat being sued and recently settling a large class action suit.

Thanks for the info. Mr. D Are there ANY CC (Affiniti, or others) that have "good" model engines in them? I see in your signature an ISX650...

Forgot to ask if there is an "official" agreement on until what year the engines have been good? It doesn't seems to be only related to DOHC or single...

Generally, folks consider pre 2007 engines less complicated/more reliable because they pre-date the emission requirements. We have a 2007 ISL with the DPF. So far, so good.

If you can find a coach with the 500 HP Cummins ISM, they were considered pretty bullet proof with the exception of the EGR valve. There is a fix for that however.

I agree, the ISM was one of, if not the best motor Cummins ever built.

The new ISX 12 and 15 SOHC with DEF don't seem to be having a problem, but you won't find them in any CC's
