anything can leave you on the side of the road. the older the vehicle the easier they are to repair and cheeper you can get a small box truck with higher miles that has been kept in good shape they are built to haul and go for miles some have 4 or 6 cyl good on gas

What about the availability of parts when the inevitable happens?

Before you buy anything call a parts store and see what have in stock, ask for a water pump,belts,etc. or something . That may help
