Car Care

You know how it is. That proud feeling you have when you drive home your new vehicle for the first time. Maybe you show it off to friends, family, and give it an extra wash on Sundays too. Inevitably, that shiny new vehicle starts to look a bit faded; it may even start to show the signs of rust!

Whether it's your family car, or one of 30 trucks in your company fleet, everyone wants to present a good image and keep their vehicles looking like new.

How can we keep our vehicles looking as good as possible, prolong their life, and maintain good resale value?
Well, all the vehicle manufacturers offer some kind of corrosion warranty. Unfortunately few of us ever actually pick up that book that came with the car and read what that warranty actually includes. Do you live in Ontario or Quebec? Then you know road salt is how we keep our streets safer in winter. But did you know road salt is one of the exclusions in manufacturers' corrosion warranties?

The good news is we can protect our vehicles quite easily with some great products that are on the market. Here are a few to consider:

Xzilon Exterior Paint Protection:

The latest technology in protecting your paint doesn't just protect against fading. It protects against tree sap, bird droppings, UV, acid rain and road tar. All of these things can damage the paint on your car. Originally designed for the aviation industry, Xzillon® molecular adhesion technology is certified for all Boeing and Gulfstream aircraft, and is now available for automotive application. With a 10 year warranty, you really can help keep that showroom shine!

Interior Fabric and Leather Protection:

We've all accidentally spilled or dropped something in our vehicles at one point. And if wasn't us, it was one of the kids or the dog. Sometimes getting a food or beverage stain out proves to be near impossible. Protecting the fabric and leather can now be done in a safe and effective way. It's like having invisible seat covers!
