It is the only large diesel engine, that I know of, manufactured after 2007, that does not require the use of DEF to meet the EPA standards.

Navistar did have problems with their larger engines, but seem to have survived that, and all you have to do is look at the large number of Navistar big rigs on the road all over the US and Canada.

I'm not necessarily a supporter of Navistar, but I sure dislike misinformation.
I totally agree!

Test drove a 2013 with the max force 10. It was the tag axle diplomat ended up walking because of all the bad publicity this motor gets. It could very well be a fine engine but once it gets branded which it has your just kinda screwed.
As far as the dealer trade comment. All dealers are thieves they want to give you jack for yours and sell you high on there's
Expect in most cases as much as 40% less low nada book . It's legalized robbery. But idiots do it and that's why dealers continue
To get away with it. We the people should not accept this kind of dealing. We pay high side for these coaches and 2 years later they tell u it's worth half. Ridiculous.....
