Spiders only repair upto 50% (or something like that) for vehicles. Use a garage for a complete repair.

To be clear on it, both above points are correct at the same time. (Although the second one could do with better spelling)

To add to that, same applies for Eden's Repair Vehicle.

I'm pretty sure the "Repair stopped" message comes from movement of either the spider repairing or vehicle being repaired. I think you get the same message if a vehicle passing by forces a spider repairing a structure to move as well.

As mentioned, repair vehicles and spiders can only repair a vehicle up to 50%. Once the vehicle is repaired up to that limit, you will get the message "Vehicle Reparied" if I'm not mistaken :)

Edit: You will also get an error message - probably the "Repair stopped", if you run out of ore while repairing something.

Plus a vehicle needs the same ore types to get repaired like it needed when you built it, so even if you have enough ore of one type but not all required ore types, it will just say vehicle repaired
