What does servicing a vehicle mean?

I keep hearing that I should service my vehicle regularly, but I'm not familiar with car terminology. I feel stupid asking, but what does servicing a vehicle mean?

That’s a great question!
Service is a term often used interchangeably with basic car maintenance, and to most people, it’s the same idea. However, servicing a car also includes checking the condition of the vehicle rather than just performing standard maintenance, such as an oil change or a tire rotation.
Servicing a car does not extend to more intense repairs needed due to collisions or other events. For those instances, you’re going to want to make sure you have good car insurance to help offset the cost.
