    I'm sure this is the easiest thing in the world to fix, I have no idea how though. I am calling a truck into a game and it comes in and drives backwards. How do I turn it around (180)?

    You could turn it around in your 3d modeling software, or if you're using Vector3.forward for movement, just switch to -Vector3.forward.

    It's not a good idea to use -Vector3.forward for transform manipulation, it will cause frustration a lot like what if you want to rotate your truck left and right? Those values will be inverted too.

    Instead, create an empty GameObject and make your truck it's child. Then do all the transformation on the empty GameObject as it's rotation will return 0 on all axis. (Better yet, rotate the model on a modelling software as AdrianC suggested).
