If you have been having some trouble with your vehicle, it is important to make sure that you are getting it to your trusted mechanic as soon as you can. Of course, you now have to deal with the decision on how you are going to get it there. You might be tempted to simply drive it there yourself, as this saves you the expense of a tow truck and you can have a friend or family member drive you home until your vehicle is repaired.
If you're tired of working for someone else and you're ready to become an owner/operator, it's time to start looking at trucks. You could buy a brand new truck, but you'd end up wasting your money. Brand new trucks may have that "new truck" smell and come with cool gadgets, but that "new truck" smell is going to fade quickly, and the cool gadgets are just going to cost you more.
