Re: dt360 vs 444e or other
I have 1999 t444e it has almost 200,000kms on it , I like it just fine , I put 9700kms this summer on it , used less then a half a liter of oil, got a average 10.5 mpg(full size blue bird), it was well maintained. most people like the 466,\360 and I do to, but its like anything else you can get a bad one, doesnt matter what size it is. one thing about the 444, its eazy as pie to get parts, if you had to you can go to a ford dealer, that could be a big plus if your in some small town up in the middle of the boonies. my buddy has a 466 in his bus, its quieter then mine, and seems to have more poop. but he has a over heat problem, hes thinking its a leaky o ring in the cly head(common problem). I have to say Im really happy with the my 444, it starts and runs great, and I know ill get 500kms if I look after it, that will be 15 years or so., Its up to you, just make sure what everone you get make sure it was reg, mainted.
just my 2 cents
