Maintaining your Paint Warranty: The Hidden Truth

5 January 2013


I’m sure some of you have heard at one point or another a car manufacturer say their paint has a 6-12 year warranty, and paint protection is not recommended on their cars. It would be interesting to see the manufacturers reaction when you take your car back with acid and bird marks and use their claim that you didn’t need paint protection.

Now I am also sure [being the diligent car owner you are] you have read your cars owners manual and discovered the section discussing the need to protect your paint by waxing periodically. If you have been following our blog, you will know our opinions on using wax and wax based products already. If you don’t know, you can read about it here. >> Why You Should Never Wax Your Car <<

Let’s be honest, we all love our cars, we want them to stay shiny and new; but most of us don’t have the time to keep up proper car care. This goes especially for waxing. What this generally leads us to is outsourcing our car care, and leaving our paint protection and detailing to someone who may be using cheap inferior products. Many of these products [such as wax] can end up causing more damage to your paint in the end.

Keeping your cars paint warranty really shouldn’t be that hard. Routinely cleaning your car and keeping the paint protected all year will ensure you not only have the best looking paint around, but the full warranty on your paint.
