All I know is I can beat him up the hill and pass him at the gas station! :-)
Todd, that seems like a good price for a three year old coach with an original MSRP around $250k, particularly when it has very low mileage.
Most of the concerns with the Navistar engine has to do with the exhaust being run back through the engine. Mechanics tell me that it dramatically shortens the engine life. That's what I'm told, although I should add that diesel engines are about as far removed from my area of expertise as anything could be. I'm a tax guy, not an engine guy so I rely on what those who are supposed to be experts tell me.
