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.
