Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• RAC chief engineer John Wood has announced that Sabers of Norwich, part of the familyowned Holden group of truck and car dealerships, is the first garage to be appointed to the RAC's Elite Register, which the RAC says is soon likely to mean as much in the motor trade as a Michelin red star among restaurants.

Wood forecasts that by the year 2000 motorists will be able to check vehicle fitness by driving into garage clinics for human-style bodyscans with laser beams in plug-in diagnostic testers.

Garage mechanics, he says, will enjoy the same status as their white-coated opposite numbers operating body scanners in hospitals. -The terms 'mechanics' and 'grease monkeys' will become redundant words in the vocabulary of the motor industry."
