Some of the highest-cost items, according to Fleet Advantage, include:

  • Equipment issues combined with warranty expiration:
    • Emissions issues – DPF cleaning or replacement
    • Engine components begin to fail
    • Brake issues. At about 250,000 miles this cost jumps significantly, Fleet Advantage says.
  • Lack of follow-up repairs
  • Tire wear
  • Unforeseen breakdowns, which result in, repair cost, but also increased driver downtime, customer delays, load damage, towing expenses and more.
