While the truck manufacturer will obviously play an important role in how satisfied or dissatisfied you are going to be with your new or used truck, never lose sight of the importance that the dealership ultimately plays in your satisfaction or dissatisfaction with your new truck. With today’s complicated electronics and emissions systems, it’s unwise in the extreme to assume that your new “baby” is only going to require routine maintenance, repairs and tires to keep it in service.

Unless you have first-hand experience dealing with a dealership that already works on your trucks, it’s prudent to talk to as many truck owners of similar trucks who are or have been customers of the dealership’s service department that you are considering.
