Sadly true. I have been known to go through as many as four tractors in one night because of this. I have also gone clear to Scott Ware with maintenance issues (with outstanding success suprisingly). I refuse to drive trash. I will not be ignored when my personal safety is in the balance. I use my knowledge of the FMCSA guidelines and will quote to what subsection they are in violation of. I have no problems taking my issues to the top to be heard.
