glossner8 Posted July 28, 2009 Share Posted July 28, 2009 Hello there everybody. My question is Im looking into buying a 07 Mack Granite CV 713 . It has a AI 460 motor, 13 speed ,4.30 gear ratio, and it is air ride . It is a good looking truck but when i drove it seem really sluggish compared to my truck now which is 95 CL713 with E7 427 motor, 13 speed , 4.64 gear ratio and camelback suspension . Antways I got the VIN off it ,took to my local Mack garage just to have them tell me whats all been done to it . Its had 6 ECM put in it and 2 crossmembers. The service manager there told me I was nuts for wanting to trade my truck in on these newer trucks. He told me that anything newer than an 03 are junk the computers cant take the heat, will not get as much power or fuel mileage that my 95 does. He said you cant turn this truck any to et more power out of it . So my question is ,have alot of you had problems with granite , or the AI motors . I love my CL . It has 750000 miles on it ,motor never been tore down and runs great . Im just wanting to update but not if im going to buy a truck that less reliable then the one I already own.
