Protecting your new car


#1

Is buying an environmental paint, interior and rustproofing protection package worth it?


#2

Generally no. Todays cars are much better than the ones years ago,but dealers still try to sell those packages because its extra profit. I had one car that the manafacturer recommened NOT to rust proof.


#3

No. And the rustproofing package can do more harm than good. Application can require breeching areas that should not be breech and even clog vent holes or impair drainage paths.

But a good washing and wax job, which you can do yourself, is an absolutely good idea. And if you have wee ones a spray can of Scotchgard for the interior may be a good idea too.
