Maintenance and Condition

Penske vehicles are built on solid service history and come with a five-year maintenance report.

Buy from the Leader in Truck Leasing

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.

Pre-Sale 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

Before making a vehicle available for sale, Penske considers its condition, mileage, and age, and assigns it to one of three tiers: Level 1, Level 2, Level 3. This is the condition level you can expect when you receive the vehicle.

LEVEL 1 CONDITION

Level 1 vehicles exceed DOT standards and have passed our pre-sale inspection.

LEVEL 2 CONDITION

Level 2 vehicles meet DOT standards and have passed our pre-sale inspection.

LEVEL 3 CONDITION

Level 3 vehicles have not been inspected and may need repairs more significant than Levels 1 and 2.

Level 1

Level 1 vehicles exceed DOT standards and have passed our pre-sale inspection. These vehicles are typically a newer model year with lower mileage. Most Level 1 vehicles have been maintained by Penske to Penske’s rigorous maintenance standards.

Level 1 vehicles may have some wear and tear and may include some damage. Cab systems and controls are all in working order with no missing or damaged parts. These vehicles are free of fluid drips at the time of sale.
