Reminder Systems Are Prompting 51% Of Motorists To Perform Maintenance

At a time when most new vehicles have some form of in-car maintenance reminder system, AAA has polled motorists to investigate how drivers are evolving to this new technology and what impact (if any) it has on their vehicle maintenance habits. The survey found that 63 percent of all motorists say they have a built-in electronic maintenance reminder system. Of these, 51 percent rely solely on their in-car reminder system and have maintenance work done only when the system recommends.

Additionally, 35 percent of respondents perform maintenance work more frequently than recommended by the reminder system. Only 13 percent said they do so less frequently.
