Yes I guess a grey Holden motor would be a step up from your so called screaming two strokes. No doubt you have had to take the Holden out to recover one or two when the noise stops and won't get going again.

My late Father used to tell me that if parts are widely available for a vehicle it is indicative the vehicle needs all those parts around the country and is thus an unreliable piece of rubbish.

My own experience with Volvo's tells me they don't consume too many parts. Currently working with one that has 1.4million K's on it and hasn't had the heads off or any internal engine work done to it.

This truck is making the owner a wealthy man as it rarely has downtime and the few parts its needed have been readily available and fairly inexpensive. No doubt the parts cost more than Yanky trucks but you get what you pay for, quality.

And no he doesn't wear high heals or paint his nails.

Back in the early 90's I was keeping a small fleet of V****s on the road. An F10 blew an intercooler hose, and the genuine part was $703. So to save my boss some hard earned I cut the crimps off the end fittings and fitted some new turbo hose and 2 super clamps. Total parts cost $55.
And don't get me started on SR62 gearboxes, or oil pump shafts not hardened properly.
