A survey was made to determine the actual and recommended maintenance practices for light-duty vehicles for 1975 and later-model years. Data was gained through consumers, new-car dealerships, manufacturers, service stations, diagnostic centers, specialty shops, independent service stations, and mass merchandisers, literature research, and data evaluation. The following conclusions were reached. Automotive service requirements are becoming more complex. Diagnostic centers are diversifying into diagnostic, service, and repair facilities. Automobile dealerships employ the highest percentage of classified or rated mechanics and are more fully equipped than other classifications. Current and future requirements can be met by the diagnostic equipment industry. The majority of automobile owners are unwilling to voluntarily replace a malfunctioning catalytic converter.
