    Volvo trucks, yip them boys at Volvo love all them electronic gizmos, shame they are very unreliable, engine management, EBS (electronic braking), electronically controlled air suspension,,, they all fail on a regular basis,,, so don't see this being any different...

    Oh, and them Scanias in the picture ain't much better...
