This bus is also equipped with a 2010 year 6.0 Diesel engine. The 2008 year and up 6.0 has upgraded head studs and is a lot more reliable. They only put post 2007 6.0’s in the E Series because the larger 6.4’s would not fit. With that being said when you buy a post 2007 E series diesel, your getting one that does not come with the typical headaches that came with the earlier models of that engine. This vehicle has only 280,884k mi and runs fine and wouldn’t have made it this far if it were junk. Most shuttle buses we get usually come with at least 350k miles. This is an exception to the norm, These are lightly driven, (governed at 65MPH and religiously serviced with a preventative maintenance plan. You can expect years and years out of this unit I’ve sold plenty of late model 6.0’s with 3-600k that still ran great so if you continue to change your oil and treat the vehicle right it may last a life time. These things run better then some low milage units because they were fleet matained and they were checked and tended to every 30 days. I’ll try to describe this particular bus with a little more detail. The engine starts right up with a quick half turn of the key ,even in the cold. The engine runs smooth and sound and does not make any odd noises or blow any excessive smoke out of the exhaust. The transmission shifts smooth and on the mark without any banging or hesitation. You can cycle the gear shifter and the vehicle goes from park to reverse and drive nice and smooth with no banging or clunking. This bus drives nice and straight down the road and does not drift to either side even when traveling at higher speeds. There is no cracked glass and no warning lights or check engine lights on the dash. All (6) Tires are in great shape(see pics). The brakes work great and don’t squeak or grind. . To sum it all up this bus can be purchased and put right to use.
