What do you guys think makes more financial sense over time, new or used trucks? My dad always bought new vehicles. So when i went into business i bought a new 05 3/4 ton dodge cummins. My repairs/maintanence for all of last year was around 650 dollars. Basically thats just oil changes, differencial fluid changes, wipers, and thats about it. I know what people who spend upwards for 10k on one vehicle for maintenance some years. This year i need to add another truck. I do not know which way to go. It seems like most vehicles 2-3 years old are selling for almost the same price as new. I know any mason dump in the 15k price range will be beat to hell. Thinking long term what do you guys think really works out best? I am just alittle scared buying used since i have no experience with it and am not a great mechanic. Also being a 2 truck company, i can not afford the down time. Maybe i should just buy two used trucks.
