TÜV Report 2015: MAN with new record that strengthens its leading position as the most reliable truck manufacturer
MAN trucks are mostly defect-free in the TÜV general vehicle inspection and consequently stand out clearly from the vehicles of competitors.
In the 2015 TÜV report on commercial vehicles (TÜV Report Nutzfahrzeuge 2015), MAN shines again for the fourth consecutive year with the highest number of vehicles passing TÜV inspection with no defects. The trucks in the TGL, TGM, TGS and TGX series are impressive due to achieving the lowest defect rate across all age categories. With regard to the percentage of one-year-old trucks with no defects at all, MAN was once again able to surpass the previous year's record with a current percentage of 85.9. Even for the older age categories (two to five years), an above-average number of MAN trucks passed the general vehicle inspection free of any defects. According to the TÜV Report 2015, "65.6 percent of five-year old trucks is a record that stands to this day."
Regular professional maintenance pays off
"For the fourth consecutive time, MAN is moving to the forefront in the TÜV Report on commercial vehicles. That makes me very proud," says Heinz-Jürgen Löw, Director of Sales & Marketing at MAN Truck & Bus. "The fact that an above-average number of MAN trucks pass the main vehicle inspection without any defects will make our customers happy, because it saves them money. The evaluation shows that, even after the sale, customers can count on MAN as a reliable partner and that they are in good hands in our workshops."
The increasing number of MAN service and maintenance contracts is also proof of this. Regular professional maintenance pays off for truck operators: vehicles in the fleet are ready for use, rather than needing unplanned trips to the workshop due to neglected maintenance.
