We’re guessing if you’re truck shopping, you expect a lot out of it. Trucks can really be put through the wringer with major hauls, massive towing jobs, and even just trekking off-road. So, sometimes, shoppers can be hesitant about buying a used truck at Don’s Ford. However, if it’s been properly cared for, there’s no reason to rule out a used pickup truck.

How Long Can a Truck Last?

A pickup truck’s lifespan is largely dependent on how it was cared for. Oftentimes, pickup trucks are regularly maintained, since many of them are used for work. In fact, this helps make trucks the likeliest segment to have an excessive lifespan. There are even many pickups that can last for over 200,000 miles (or up to 15 years).

How Do I Know if It’s Reliable?

Knowing a truck’s history is one of the best ways to know if it’s reliable. A vehicle history report can help give you a snapshot of where a vehicle has been.

It lets you know if the vehicle was involved in any accidents and if it received its necessary repairs and maintenance. It can also show you how many owners a vehicle has had and how it was used.

Why Buy a Used Pickup Truck?

Wondering why consider a used pickup truck at all? There are lots of benefits to buying used, particularly the cost savings. This is especially beneficial if you are looking for trucks for work and may have to buy more than one.

Plus, they have more affordable added costs. You can usually register and insure used vehicles more affordably than new ones.
