In 1997, Freightliner’s success and profitability allowed it to acquire Ford’s truck manufacturing division, after which it was renamed the Sterling. A couple of years later, in 1999, Freightliner achieved another milestone by manufacturing its 1 millionth truck. Around the same time, its Century Class was expanded while the Columbia models were modified for fleet based operations. Diversification was extremely important for trucking companies during the 1990s, and for Freightliner this involved multiple acquisitions.
About Freightliner FLD 132

It also has an air ride style suspension, thirteen speed transmission and tandem rear based axles. The tires are sturdy and durable and it has enough space to haul a huge amount of cargo.

Common Freightliner FLD 132 A/C Problems
Drivers have encountered a number of air conditioning problems in this series. The first is the leakage of the mixing valve, which is simple to replace and when combined with a recharge will usually resolve the issue. Other truckers have stated that on separate occasions they needed to replace the expansion valve, blower and condenser.
Freightliner experts recommend changing the dryer to address leaks, but there have been cases where the evaporator was the culprit. Always check for cracks within the truck’s higher pressure line because they can be small and difficult to detect. Regarding the engine, many recommend the Cummins and Cat over the Mercedes model because they encountered problems with it.
