My car has a clear coat finish…do I need waxes and polishes?
Yes. All newer cars use a clear coat finish which is actually just the last paint process (clear) the car manufacturer uses. It is still susceptible to the effects of acid rain, snow, salt, bird droppings, and other pollutants. It will stain, and to properly care for your car finish, you should wash regularly, and use the polishes and sealants to provide additional protection.
