I would'nt swap my nice comfy Cascadia for ANY POS Volvo. Avrt buying Volvo's is the defination of insanity...doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Any Volvo's built since 2003 are the biggest piles of DOG CRAP ever concieved by man.
You must be high or drunk or don't know squat about trucks.
Nope..not high..not drunk...I supposed with around 3 million miles behind mile,..snow..ice..mountains..Canada, I no nothing about trucks. Over the years I've driven..Macks,Volvo's,KW's,Pete's,Frtlnr's, IH's and FORDS,My Cascadia id the best truck I've ever driven on ICE,SNOW and Heavy Rain/WIND. This week I turned..ORL to Pelham Al,Birmingham Al,Russellville Ky,Mt Juliet Tn,Irving Tx,Grand Prairie Tx,Tifton Ga and Home to ORL, got in this morning,2786 miles and I'm not even tired...If I had a Volvo i probally been on the wrecker somewhere along the line!
How much sitting did you have to do in order to rest up? When will AE get Freightliner Coronado's?got in this morning,2786 miles and I'm not even tired...!

Hard to beat the Int daycab when in the city, the automatic makes it very nice in traffic/stop lights and when blind side backing the clutch is one thing less to worry about when you are crowded situations, it's just not worth a flip on the road, no fuel mileage or pulling power at all.
The international sleepers were great until they got a few miles.... AE never replaces the shocks unless they break, that would be a huge change in the rides. The new daycab volvo's have been getting sent out, some of the older guys have been having issues adjusting to the touch screen keyboard, remember the new qual comm's screen slides up just like a slider phone and gives you the option of a regular, but small, keyboard so you dont have to deal with the touch screen as much, also using a pencil/pen to touch the screen may also help, logging yourself as an active driver will keep it from making noise every 5 mins (it makes a noise to remind you to log in).
Driver's of the newest Volvo's, keep in mind there is a battery cut off switch that the older volvos dont have (in case you get in it and it has no power), it's located on the frame just under the driver's seat right above the battery box, I say that because there will be some clowns that walk by and flip the switch on unsuspecting drivers.
We have had ONE penny per mile raise in 6 years. I don't expect one as long as the bourgeoisie are stuffing their coffers and we the proletariat will continue to slave for their pocket stuffing.Any news on raises this year. I was about this time last year that we received one.
Once the hill realized the big $$$ savings of screwing the combo drivers on pay, there will be no equalization of pay. It is not fair but the combo drivers tolerate it and corp. loves it so no, there will be no pay equalization.Will combo shuttle pay ever be equal to regular shuttle pay.
