    "in repair" Vs "under repair" ?

    Hi All,

    I would like to know when to use "in repair" and "under repair" .

    For example:
    > we use: the building is under repair

    What in case of a car? Is it "car is in repair" or "car is under repair" or "car is in for repair" or "car is being repaired" .....which is the best usage?

    Thank you

    I think in AmE you would hear most often "my car is in for repair" with "my car is being repaired" a very close second.
