    Back in service today after a 2 week break. Hoping for a good next couple of weeks. Also hoping that all drivers have good weeks ahead!

    She didn't enjoy the 2 day road trip. She won't go anywhere near the van! LOL. Plus I bought her for my wife. She's turning out to be a great and smart puppy.

    We had 3 dogs, 2 were Dalmatians and 1 Blue Tic Hound. Two were great in cars but the first Dalmatian, (Dart), was terrible to ride with

    If it wasn't for bad luck you would have no luck at all. Hope they get you out faster this time.

    Now fuel fuel AND new rail installed.... No go, after testing fuel for contaminates and not finding any, fca tells them to replace the high pressure fuel pump, and it'll be a week before they get it. Had all paper work scanned and emailed to lawyer last night.... 9 major warranty repairs, 49 days in shop total and counting, In a year and 3 weeks of ownership of a very expensive brand new commercial vehicle. 2 same issues multiple repair visits with neither one fixed yet.

    Loaded out of FL in under 24 hours. Which was good, I needed a good nights sleep. A little 56 mile DH to get an almost 1,700 mile load. 2 stops, first in SC and second drop in NH. Got until 13:00 Saturday to make the second drop.

    It does, only 24,000 miles/3 months, 3 or more major warranty repairs in that period... The federal law, Magnuson Act doesn't apply to commercial vehicles if I read it correctly, but there is an "implied warranty" issue I may be able to get legal help with which states that any thing, refrigerator, toaster, commercial vehicle etc that doesn't perform to reasonable expectations for the purpose of which it was sold for, might apply. Waiting to hear prognosis from a couple of law firms next week.

    Maybe you should post this in Newbies Paradise to help the dreamers see what the real possibilities are in Expediting

    Maybe I should try and sell one of them my van? Kill 'em quick!
    That would be doing them a great favor, actually..... sparing them a slower, more agonizing death!!!
