I love this perspective shift!
We need to tend to our car vehicles at some point so they drive well. If we ignore the upkeep, our car won't last as long and/or not drive as well as it could.
Seeing our body as a vehicle brings the same kind of awareness to it. Tending to our body daily will serve it well in most cases; for feeling better, being energetic and stronger, for longevity, for healing faster from physical challenges, for living longer independently and by hopefully being a bit more okay when the final time does come for our vehicle to run out of gas and not be able to be refueled (that deals more with the mind-chiseling mud aspect).
But I do love seeing the body as a vehicle, and I'm going to do my best to keep the gas tank filled until the time comes when it will fuel up no more. AND, it's the reason why I keep moving my body daily.
