Connected Maintenance

Auto care gets technological as consumers demand further control

Implications - Revolting against the mechanic, consumers are opting for connected, and in some cases autonomous, forms of vehicle maintenance to gain better control over their cars. This shift towards smart ways to maintain vehicle health relates to consumers who crave digital integration, but aren't willing to invest in an advanced vehicle. Furthermore, this ties into the DIY culture that is particularly popular with Millennials.
