“…you want it to be a vehicle that’s going to hold its value. The more fragile the product is, the quicker it’s going to depreciate on you, or even worse, you end up with a vehicle that no one is going to want second hand because there’s just too many problems with it. After 18 months of really being on the road four or five days a week, sometimes doing multiple trips per day- we power hose it [R240] regularly and it just looks brand new again. I’ve never looked back!”
