Workhorse should just close the doors
I, like so many people, have had a problem with my caliper on my workhorse chassis. Just to clarify some facts, we have a 2005 Allegro with 8500 miles. After having the caliper lock up and doing everything the recall letter said to do, we had the coach towed in to the nearest dealer. After the coach was inspected the mechanic said,"I can tell the caliper locked up but because you noticed in time and pulled over it did not do any damage, so we cannot replace the caliper."
Now, I understand there is no fix from Bosch, so if I get another caliper it could do the same exact thing. I am good with leaving everything alone, drive around the problem if I can and be careful. What they did not tell me was that because there was no damage, although the mechanic said he knew the caliper locked up, we had to pay the $250 to have it looked at. What a rip off.
I called the workhorse rep BILL ONEILL who basically just sat on the phone and said tough crap we are not paying for it. I asked him about workhorse being responsible for thier chassis and he told me that the brake issue is not a workhorse problem it is a Bosch problem. He also said that workhorse did not send out those letters that those were Boschs recommendations, although it has workhorses name all over it.
I am tired of fighting. I think this problem is going to get somebody hurt or even killed eventually. I think they should hold everybody from workhorse responsible, especially BILL ONIELL. I hope he is in the next one that locks up with his family.
By the way feel free to give Bill a call Bill Oniell 954 328 5326 WORKHORSE REP
