What Has Changed in the Auto RepairIndustry


Times have changed in the last few decades in every aspect of life. Every industry has witnessed a huge advancement, in which the industry of automotive stands in the first row with revolutionary changes.

Cars few decades earlier whichused to run on certain kind of mechanisms are no more in the scenario. The modern cars that we get to see in huge numbers are now using technologies that are futuristic in their concept and are based more on automated systems. As a result, repairing these modern cars will require different sets of machines to get repaired and replaced. Therefore, the industry of auto repair also had to change. This is plain common sense that was seconded by the engineers associated with the Atascocita auto repair center, who also showed us with practical examples all those repair mechanisms that they have learned to use only last few years.

At the same time they also shared with us the fact that even the frequency of maintenance has changed a lot, since the time these new cars are on the roads.


The mechanics who are into auto repairing shared that while older cars were recommended withmore frequent maintenance schedules, the latest cars of today have doubled or even tripled the intervals for visiting an auto repair shop for the regular maintenance servicing. Earlier the average milestone for an oil and filter change was 3000 miles or a period of three months while the new cars have pushed the numbers to 6000 miles and six months both from the time of purchase, and between two maintenance schedules. They also grudged that some components that are used in these days do not even need a change in a lifetime, like transmission fluid in some cars.

In some of thestill modern cars the need for changing these items is either only once in every two years, or only if the car has travelled more than 30,000 miles or so.

Revolution in Tires

The new cars run on new kinds of tires that are way different from the older kinds in multiple ways. The newly invented tubeless and nitrogen tires now have replaced the regular rubber tires, to avoid frequent chances of a flat tire, and that has changed the face of repair shops who focused on tire repairs and replacements. They also wanted to add to their story that changing the tires too have become a rare incident for most car users, unless one wishes to upgrade or has really lost a tire for some reason.

Automatic Transmissions

This is the era where the most cars have replaced the manual transmissions with the automatic ones. This has not only changed the safety aspects of the cars, since the gears keep changing automatically reading the road condition, but also has helped in the driving habits of people. The automatic gearbox requires lesser probabilities of a repair since there is less scope of gear changing errors. But in case an automatic gearbox faces a damage, the repair has become pretty more expensive than the manual ones, commented the mechanical team of the center of auto repair Atascocita.
