The guys I know that run them, mind you they are the newer mx13 500hp, are quite happy with them. Reliable with little to no issues compared to Cummins and some which had yellow painted engines previously are happy with the better fuel mileage.

Yup it's all roses and sunshine coming out your ass till you can't get parts or the repair bill is crazy. I stick with proven technology and something that parts are more common. Lamborghini is a nice car till it breaks in Cactus Tx.

Cummins manufactures the paccar engine..if you haul heavy..you might have problems with them..they just dont have the cubes to handle the extra weight....they are alright up to 80,000...

DAF originally manufactured the engine in Europe pacar invented 400 million in the company and the technology and brought to Columbus Mississippi and it's the first engine to be rated a B10 since caterpillar B10 means it's a million plus mile engine I have a lot these problems than all my buddies with Cummins or Detroit I'm an old CAT fan but their out of the game
