That's one way to look at it.

Another way is the guy who dies with the most toys is dead.

i used to work for a towing company
we had a contract for uhaul
they keep good tires & brakes on their equipment in most cases
but they don't worry much about the other stuff
if i had to rent a truck to do a long move i would pay a little extra & rent from Penskie. they have a fleet of newer equipment not old junk.

The guy who buys an efficient car, instead of a pickup, is likely to save enough on fuel that he can afford a lot more toys.
