Thanks for the feedback Steve.
I was aware of the Feds screwing up the diesel engines starting in 2004.
I just figured by 09, the bugs would have been worked out for more reliable platforms.
Is there a newer year bus produced, that clears some of the 2004 EPA mandated "hurdles" or are they all now unreliable or prone to electronic engine control foibles?
