Functional and cheap, but low build quality and a droopy face only a mother could love.

The company I work for has been buying M2 106's is great numbers for about 8 years now, most Cummins ISB powered with Allison 3000 series transmissions.  Our drivers like them, big cab, great visibility, tight turning radius, easy to get in and out of, decent HVAC.  As far as reliability is concerned the Freightliner parts are fine, most common problems seem to be the coolant surge tanks and an occasional radiator.  Cummins emissions and aftertreatment devices are by far the bulk of the trouble.  We have since 'graduated' to the M2 112, similar spec. but with the Cummins/Westport ISL-G.  Those trucks have been nearly trouble-free.  We would probably give International a shot if they offered the ISL-G or some other CNG engine as an option.  We are pretty much done with diesel.

Freightliner has come a long way in medium duty since the FL 50/60/70.  Those trucks were piles.
