    progress -development

    When I check the dictionary it seems to me that those two words have similar meaning, but I am not sure wheter they are synonyms. In the below example can I use those words interchangeably.

    Assume that my car is broken-down and I gave it to serviceman to have it repaired, after few days I call the service to ask,

    Is there any progress/development about my car? (I want to ask is there anything new about the repairment process)

    Which word is more suitable?

    Re: progress -development

    Is there any progress with my car? means Is the repair work progressing?

    Are there any developments with my car? means Are there any more problems being revealed during the repair process. or Did you find any MORE things to repair?

    Some people say to the mechanic: "Give me the bad news"
