For me it was new truck as my job is field based and I need to have reliable transportation so that I can get to wherever my destination is. Previous to this job, it was always used as my work location was always the same and was less than 10 miles from home.... worse case was needed to take the bus or get a ride if something happened to the vehicle. I make sure to always check tires, fluids and lights every week. Regular checking gives me piece of mind whether it was used or new that my trip would go smoothly. It helps to have a friend or two that is handy in case you have questions about what regular items you should be checking.
