Navistar has launched a new program for late-model used International trucks called Diamond Renewed, offering a comprehensive inspection and mechanical reconditioning process.

The Diamond Renewed process was developed at the company's Used Equipment Reconditioning Center in Indianapolis, where technicians conduct mechanical and aesthetic reconditioning.

Work includes cleaning or replacing diesel particulate filters and diesel oxidation catalysts, exhaust gas recirculation calibration software updates, checking and repairing brake systems, conducting major body repair, painting the frame rail and more.

To date, the facility has reconditioned more than 1,200 units, according to the company.

"Our comprehensive reconditioning process includes more than 180 vehicle and engine inspection points to drive consistency across the International brand,” said David Gerrard, senior vice president of distribution, Navistar. "Our warranty includes coverage of the EGR system and we are providing the best in uptime support as the only OEM to provide performance and uptime monitoring as standard on our used trucks."

Model year 2010 or newer International ProStar, TranStar and LoneStar models powered by MaxxForce EGR engines, under 400,000 miles and up to 450 horsepower, are eligible for the Diamond Renewed program. The company's warranty provides OEM factory-backed warranty coverage for up to two years, 200,000 miles. Coverage includes EGR components.

"Diamond Renewed assures every truck meets our stringent reconditioning and quality standards," Gerrard said. "While the UERC supports the company's 15 used truck centers, we have also engaged the dealer channel in this program. Any vehicle that is badged with Diamond Renewed, whether it has been to the UERC or to the dealer, will have undergone our standardized reconditioning process."

The warranty also includes OnCommand Connection, a single remote diagnostics portal, providing fleet managers with access to real-time fault codes, truck and dealer locations, vehicle health reports and fault code action plans. The integrated monitoring system also connects fleet managers with dealers to allow for vehicle diagnosis and recommended solutions prior to arrival at the dealership.

    This seems like a win win situation for everyone and should have been done years ago.

    The problem is that you won't be able to get the truck in to the shop to get fixed in a timely manner. You will be broke before you can get the truck fixed. Navistar only pays dealers penny's on the dollar for warranty work so you will wait.
