I just purchased a CX7 GT today and during the closing when the manager was talking about the extended warranty, he recommended the Simoniz System5 for paint and interior surface protection for up to 5 years. The System is quite expensive - $499 - and I did not purchase it. The manager and sales person highly recommended it, claiming I would not have to wax the car for 5 years. Has anyone purchased the Simoniz process, and is it worth the expense?

    Don't be roped in by those add-ons. Dealers will try to tack on lots of extras that aren't worth the money. You can do a better job by waxing your car with a good grade of wax. As for the interior, you can get a good quality fabric/leather protectant, that works equally well. Check consumer reports, online. They provide good info about dealer added options.

    New cars don't really need to be waxed nor do they need extra protection anyway. I've seen some owner's manuals that just say to wash the car now and then (some do recommend occasional waxing).

    Hard to resist shining up a brand new car I know, but you'll get over it after a couple of years. :shades:

    "Mop & Glow" is a big profit center for the dealer.
