Scania’s R-series Topliners are, in the main, indestructible. Call the vast majority of those operating and/or maintaining these vehicles to ask what problems they’ve had and the answer you will get is mainly: “None at all. They’re bulletproof.” They really do all use that same word. Bulletproof. The R-series had such a good reputation, in fact, that we can point you in the direction of multiple hauliers who lined up to order the last few of these trucks before the next generation came in, because they were gutted production of the model was coming to an end. With this in mind, while we did come across some issues it’s worth used buyers being aware of, they’re all pretty minor and some apply only to the very earliest trucks.
