for whom the bus tolls?
Ok, so we have been looking at so many busses and told/read so many varying opinions! I had eliminated the cat 3126 with the allison 545 until I got a callback from a school district looking to sell off their remaining fleet. I was told they have GMC busses with cat 3126 and allison 545 transmissions. They have been maintained by the same mechanics and inspected quarterly up till the end of the 2017 school year. All maintenance records and all running great, assured they would not sell to me if anything was an issue and if their was an issue they would have caught it at last inspection. Also told they run at between 60-70 mph and no overheating issues, the mechanic I spoke to said he just drove one of the busses cross country with issue. He also said the cat 3126 before 2004 is great and swears the allison 545 is more than enough for a school as they have sold many for just that purpose. So... what am I to do? Should I go with one of the GMC cat 3126 with allison 545 transmission? Thanks, I plan on looking at them today or tomorrow.
