Well, it might be the manual in german, or the lien sale that could give problems.

MAN itself, chassis, engine will live forever. Many of the real expedition offorad vehicles use MAN diesel.

If I remember right, the lowfloor extra long airport busses here at LAX were (or still are) MAN busses.

If I read it right, the manual is in BOTH German AND English. No problem there....

Gary,
I was refering to the lak of a title. I agree that Man is a quality product. We had a knuckle mounted on a Man truck to pick-up logs back in the 80,s. Tough truck

There are more problems than just the title. That rig probably weights in at 40,000 plus and with 280 hp even with a manual will be a major dog even on the flats with a head wind. You'd think with 11.41 liters the hp would be higher. I see why it stops so good, you never get going to fast.
