2005 Mercedes-Benz Actros 480 480 hp diesel from Germany
Lack of power when fully loaded
Blown turbo hose 2x.
Roomy cabin with good interior design is the place to be. Better cabin than on my previous trucks.
My only complaint is bloody transmission (too slow shifting, hard clutch), and serious lack of power when fully loaded. My previous DAF with the same amount of horse powers did much better. When uphill I need to change gear into 5th, 8th gear is not powerful enough.
My associate drives a Scania with the 480hp, and the truck has a lot more power than my Actros, especially when going uphill.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
