Meguiar’s Dispels a Dirty Dozen - List of Common Car Care Myths

Separating Fact from Fiction Eliminates Misconceptions and Mistakes


Fresh Paint Guide

Unlike new car factory finishes that are fully cured and ready to wax, repainted car finishes require special attention for their first 90 days.  During this critical period, freshly painted finishes must be allowed to breathe as their solvent content evaporates and flashes off and allowing the paint to achieve its intended hardness and durability.


Wheel & Tyre Care

Just as clean, well-maintained, polished shoes are the finishing touch to a professional-looking wardrobe; clean, well-maintained, wheels and tyres are the finishing touch to an immaculate showroom image for your car.


Swirl Marks

The most often stated complaint about new car finishes has transitioned from oxidation to “swirl marks”...those fine hairline, circular scratches that you see on dark-coloured cars in direct sunlight.  The good news is that while they cannot be completely prevented, they can be easily removed when you are armed with the right products and information.
