Routine Maintenance

Interesting news bit here from Automotive News about the percentage of overall business various outlets are attributing to routine maintenance. Not really surprising to see that repair shops are now getting almost half their business from maintenance, and tire dealers are getting almost one-fifth of their business from the category. Everyone wants a piece of the maintenance pie, it seems.

(This post written while listening to “Bullet With Butterfly Wings” by Smashing Pumpkins, a remake of a song by the same title originally sung by the German alternative group Sigue Sigue Sputnik – in case you were interested! I just like it ’cause it’s the title song from “Whale Wars.”)
