It's the high mileage stuff that starts the grey area of this definition of repair. I replaced the rear springs on my '80 SD, but that was when the car was 21 years old. They didn't break, they just weren't holding up the backend like I am sure they did when new, they just wore out. I guess anything that breaks prematurely would be a repair, like motor mounts, radiators, etc. Fluids and filters are definetly maintenance items.
