    UD 460 Truck Service Intervals

    What is the service interval on UD460 truck. And is the truck a reliable truck?
    I don't want to just take the sales rep story on it, his only after a sale more than anything else.

    All vehicles should come with their own service log book. There's normally a particular pocket or place in the vehicle where it lives. In the book every service, usually up to 200,000 km at least, is listed along with the requirements for that particular service and a place for the stamp to say it's been done (or to say you've been done depending where you take it ).

    The new Quon range extend the service intervals of the vehicles to 30 000 km for long-haul and 20 000 km for medium-haul applications, up from 25 000 km and 15 000 km respectively.

    Kind Regards

    Ben

    These days most new trucks are reliable. It depends on what your application of it is though that influences the decision on which new truck to buy.

    For example, would you use it for long or short haul, as a % how much tar road vs gravel road. Will you use it to shuttle freight or fully loaded both directions? Diesel consumption are also a major item to look at when comparing cost of ownership of these vehicles.
