Navistar's Turnaround Progress Overshadowed by Warranty Problems

The International Lonestar was the final Class 8 model to get the Cummins ISX engine with SCR.

Executives said the main culprits were industry truck sales levels that didn't pick up as soon as expected, and the continuing high warranty costs for its legacy all-EGR EPA-2010 engines.
