I visited freightliner in tolleson, Az April 10th for a pm service. 4000 miles down the road my fuel filter restriction light comes on which should not be happening. Took it to freightliner in Memphis to see what the problem was. They said the fuel filters need to be changed. I called freightliner of Phoenix to get clarification of exactly what they did for 495 dollars and come to find out they didn't even touch the fuel filters. So now I am spending 400 more dollars for diagnostics and fuel filter replacement. According to Memphis freightliner it is freightliner corporate policy that a truck getting a pm gets all filters changed unless driver says otherwise. This is overall bad service and don't think I should be paying a total of 900 dollars for something that should have been taken care of in a full pm service for 495.
To whom this may concern,

I brought my truck for electronic issue, but their expertise was not enought to find the problem they wanted to keep experimented on my truck but at the end not solution they charge me over $3,300 and my truck was never fix, when I was ready to tow my truck after the payment was done otherwise they won't aloud me to take the truck out of the dealer, when I open my truck door the dashboard was completely apart, so how can I can trust a Freightliner dealer. They suppose to have great mechanics? I am frustrated, now what do I need to do, or how my problem can be solve.
I am looking for someone to call about a serious complaint. Going through Freightliner Customer Service "Mercedes Benz" is a worthless exercise. I am ready to call the number provided above but feel that working through the proper chain of command is polite. And I sure don't feel in a polite mood right now. I have a Sprinter Van than is consumed with a metastasizing cancer of failing systems and am looking for answers.
Robert, please call me at (hidden). I would like to explain to you in further detail for what this has become. If you can locate your sales person his name is Rob Nusca. He will know the full story. Please check with him before calling me. Thank you.
I drive who stay alday just we don't have a electronic man to fix me, making me wait all day be sue if don't have people can do the work why would have a company called freighter no where sleep, Boise Idaho, my lawyer will get in touch with CEO of company, am going to lose my money for the load,

Got a 2010 Cascade. It has rack n pionon steering. It has gone bad, Freightliner don't make them anymore. So I can't replace it. Cost to much to switch it to conventional steering. Don't know what to do.
Hello, purchased a 2011 freightliner cascadia from St. Catherine, Canada. On my first run to michigan, the truck gave me 2 engine check lights. I informed the sales person, he said I won't get far with to engine check lights and I should have it in the yard asap. I made it back to canada dropped he trailer in the yard and Truck gave me a third "stop" engine check light. Luckily I was 5 mins away from my yard. I parked it. Called the invidudual who sold me the truck with safety and emission and warranty etc., explained to me I should have it towed. I followed just that. It has been sitting the mississauga location and my Warranty which I bought to use later on is being used now. Not fair at all, location sold me Truck with defects and now the truck is being fixed under warranty. I should the emissions done by the shop. Apparently in my first run of having the truck it needs 2 seasons and a software update, and after having that fixed under warranty my truck needs a new turbo. Been out of work for 3 weeks. I will never ever recommend anyone to buy freightliner from your premier group trucks. If you need proof, you can call me at (hidden). I would also test that this link is b.s and no1 is going to help me. I am stuck buying someone's else headache and Frieghtliner is now milking my Warrenty. I have tried calling the person who sold it to me and he is too busy to call me. Bad service these guys don't care just walk away when you see them. I will follow up with them as much as I can. I would like to see how such a big company would help a poor man. You guys complety ripped me off.
Who in the world would design a semi truck with a sleeper with zero room for a fridge?!!!! Do you really want us all to get groteskly obese?!!! Wth.. I'm absolutely devastated that with all of your so called college education you can't design a simple truck that will accommodate a truck driver for otr that will give them healthy living. This it's stupid. Use your degree. Design a truck for a real driver not a stearing wheel holder. I'm sickened by the cascadia. This is awefull!!! Where did all of the storage go. Into wasted space. Oh my god. This is luticress. So my spelling might not be there but holy hell. At least peterbuilt, and Volvo and mac actually uses the wasted space that y'all left. With zero room for a fridge. Never will I buy or suggest that anyone waste their money on this p.o.s. Truck
Within the first two hours your truck will be diagnosed is a complete lie here at Bakersfield, Califlower and do not go to the Memphis, Tennessee freightliner been there before yea not a good place at all.
What is the problem with your ac compressors, I have had to replace them 3 times in the last year and a half, it's costing me about 1200.00 each time. The work is done at TA by a licensed ac tech. We had a warranty one put in 7/16 it was used maybe 4 months before winter hit and here I am replacing it in January 2017? I feel like your not building this product to last very long.
one star rating, freightliner builds a great product you just need a little help with a few things to get to five stars. if you have a interest in a few recommendations let me know.
Plz send me freightliners head office email id plz
We came to fyda in sharonville ohio to have the truck fixed they said that it was not fixed that the check engine light was still on which its not and it keeps stalling out which it doesnt they just wanted to suck more money out of us for work they say they are going to do and dont we will never buy a freightliner again plus we are taking it to our friend that works for freightliner and having him check it .he is very honest now they say what we have fixed is not under warrenty because the job was not complete they lied to us about check engine light and stalling
looks like freightliner dealerships are a disaster in all North America! I have my truck often in Mississauga Ontario Canada and every time I go in for service the truck is there for at least 4 days or a week! and the thing is their mechanic never get it right the 1st time! you have to go back 2-3 times for the same problem!
if you have a problem on a trip good luck finding a dealer who will take care of you!
shame at freightliner for selling a product they can`t service! shame!
Floyd's Freightliner dealership in Cheyenne Wyoming their mechanics and their service department are nothing but ripoffs I put my truck in there to get it fixed they charge me $1,000 and still did not get fixed end up having to go to a caterpillar shop to get it fixed

To Freightliner Management and P.R. personal,
I have sat in the Springfield, MO service and parts department for 3 days, because my Freightliner is linking air and the clutch was not working correctly. I have spent over $3000.00 and stayed in The Freightliner location, 3020 E. Division St.-Springfield, Missouri. As of today, Sunday 01-08017 my truck is linking air from the transmission. I was told by the service manager," Oh you still here?"
I'm hoping the personal from Freightliner's corporate office will help improve their managers and service mechanics attitudes; especially when servicing toward truckers who own their trucks.
Especially Paul, the daytime service manager was very rude and had a trouble attitude towards me by getting my truck service properly. He told me, "We not going to look at the Air Leak in your truck. You need to leave!"
Is this the type of respect and service you're showing trucker who are owner-operators?

Hi, I just spent 8 days waiting for parts and repairs in Dothan, AL. The repair was for a high pressure fuel pump, fuel injectors, abs lights, air leaks. 70 miles later the abs lights came on, the airleaks were not fixed and 900 miles later I leaked 2 gal of oil from 3 locations related to the work done in Dothan, AL. All the revenue loss, time, expense, I am now sitting at the Memphis TN Tag center worrying that I will be sitting here another week. I experienced the same thing from the Dallas Freightliner earlier this year. If there is anything you can do to help, I would appreciate it. Melanie Grech. Glen"s Diesel. (hidden)
During the gold rush it was said the only people who really made money were those that provided services to the miners. Same thing goes for trucking. As a guy that "pulls wrenches" as well as drives, I dont know how anyone can make money at this withou doing a lot of their own work.
i have a brand new CASCADIA ( 2016 ) Model 125SLP W/ 500 ISX CUMMINS Engine, when do i need to get first oil change? i put in about 20,000 Miles on it so far, please advice.
Thank you in advanced.
I think Cummins says first oil change within 100 hours! Maybe less. Normal service interval (offroad applications) is 300 hours.
