Repair vs. Maintenance

Subscribe to our newsletter

Auto repair, car maintenance—potato (puh-TEI-toe), potato (po-TAH-toe) right? Well, not-exactly-but-kind-off.

In a way, repair and maintenance have the same objective: get the most out of the tools, equipment, and infrastructure of our cars.The path they go about achieving this objective is very different, yet similar in some ways.


Repair is an action we take to revive your car to proper working conditions.

Partial failure: A part of your vehicle that can be used, but it doesn’t work to its maximum potential. Oh, and it might be unsafe on the road.

Complete failure: A part of your vehicle that’s completely destroyed. The root failure cause needs to be addressed. This can turn into an expensive affair, in some cases. For example, there is a big difference between changing a flat tire and replacing the car engine.

The bottom line : Be it a broken engine, failed batteries, steering issues or braking problems, it is necessary to repair or replace damaged parts in order to make a vehicle road-safe once again.


Maintenance of your car is kind-off-like taking care of your body.  By taking your vitamins regularly, eating healthy and exercising, you’re lowering the risk of getting sick or going to the hospital often.

With your car, maintenance is what you get regularly done to ensure your vehicle is in good health. WIthout scheduled maintenance, your car (just like your body) becomes unhealthy and has to get serviced more, which is going to pile up and cost a lot more.

The bottom line is

You should stick to a regular maintenance plan because making sure you get your oil changes, tire rotations, brake check ups and other inspections done regularly means that you won’t have to get things fixed as often.

Maintenance and repairs are an integral part of a car’s life cycle. For those that are looking to maximize the potential of their ride, they need to focus on scheduled maintenance. Repairs on the other hand can’t be scheduled unless they happen daily, which is never a good sign and can get expensive.
