Maintenance

Most of our used trucks have had just one owner, which means they have benefited from Penske maintenance their entire life, including:

  • Oil and coolant analysis that detects trouble before it happens
  • Engine settings that optimize performance and save fuel
  • More annual maintenance than the inspection law requires

Online service histories are available for most trucks, tractors and trailers we sell.

Presale Inspection

Most Penske vehicles undergo a pre-sale inspection that meets industry safety and mechanical standards, so you can be confident the truck you buy is in top working condition.

Condition Tiers

PREMIUM, PROVEN or VALUE

Before making a vehicle available for sale, Penske considers its condition, mileage and age and assigns it to one of three tiers: PREMIUM, PROVEN or VALUE. This is the condition level you can expect when you take delivery of the vehicle.

Penske also provides a 3-year maintenance report on most vehicles and buyers are able to purchase extended warranty options through National Truck Protection for most vehicles. See your Bill of Sale for additional information.
