Truck Centers Inc. celebrated the grand opening of their 10th full-service dealership in Effingham, Ill. The 47-year-old, family-owned company represents Freightliner and Western Star trucks at their 10 dealerships and 3 auxiliary facilities located in Illinois, Indiana and Missouri. Their newest location is strategically poised on 12 acres along the I-57/I-70 corridor to assist local and interstate customers with enhanced parts and service support.
The Effingham location officially opened for business in April. The dealership is currently open Monday-Friday 7 a.m.-12 a.m. and 7 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on Saturday, with future plans to offer extended weekend parts and service hours.
Affected tractors are equipped with an automated Eaton UltraShift Plus or Eaton Advantage Transmission with right hand stalk shifter. In the affected trucks, the display on the instrument panel can indicate “N” when the shifter is set into “D” or “R,” causing the truck not to move.
