When looking to buy trucks online, however, future owners should be careful and make sure they are purchasing from a reputable source. Manufacture web sites like those of Kenworth or Peterbilt are generally legitimate, though potential buyers should make sure they do not accidentally enter an illegitimate site impersonating the manufacturer web site.

While the seller listing his or her truck on Craig's List may be legitimate, discovering that information before purchasing is difficult.
