  • I would like to know when Peterbilt, or any of these companies that makes truck, will accommodate truck drivers who want to be o/o without paying interest on truck, but are willing to pay more for the actual price that the truck are being sold for. Meaning instead of paying with interest, they want to company to give them the entire price of the truck plus interest that does not change,and if the payment is late or if they pay more or double the monthly payment that they wont be penalties or interest increase. This will help the truck drive to get a new truck, truck manufactures companies will sale more, and clean air for the environment. Most truck drivers prefers to buy a used truck because of the interest that is not fixed, or when they loose a contract they still can afford to pay their truck without being stressed out. Drivers that will benefit are those who are currently working with a well known transportation companies, and o/o that want a newer truck.
