    My car doesn't need wax

    I was at Wal-Mart the other day to purchase some QD to use with my clay and a lady probably in her 70's was in there looking for something. I asked if I could help she said that her husband said "This car doesn't need wax because it is kept in the garage" She was wanting some spray wax. I talked her out of the Turtle wax and instead gave her some UQD. I tried to convince her that to make that paint last longer and to look it's best it needed a good wax. She just looked at me like I was crazy. lol. Oh well. I tried.

    Yeah, I don't usually pitch my car care routine unless I am at my Autozone. I always find someone there that I turn over to Meguiars. At least the people that walk in there are walking in becasue they want something for their car. If they are in Wal-Mart they may be looking just to look. That's been my experience at least.

    Wouldn't Ultimate Quik Wax have been a better choice if she was looking for a wax :-)

    I bite my tongue when I go into Walmart/Canadian Tire. It's funny... I see people pick up a Meguiar's product and I'm like "yes" then they put it back and walk out with whatever happens to be on sale. I just shake my head and smile. I look at it this way. All the products on the shelf have their place in the market.

    I think it's pretty cute that the lady in her 70's was ambitious enough to want to wax the car, especially when her husband said it didn't need it. That's one cool granny.

    I know what you mean. A lot of people around my area, still believe what there salesman told them. CC does not need wax. They are mostly seniors, whose idea of a car wash is to back it out of the garage when its raining. But the salespeople even tried that line on me a couple of years ago.
    quality creates its own demand

    She was really wanting something to just spray wash it. I told her to try the UQD since it cleaned and had some wax in it. She was going to buy the wax only though. I just couldn't believe that he told her that it didn't need wax because it was in a garage. Especially since we are in West Virginia and we get a good amount of snow in the winter.

    Better that, than trying to sell you some form of miracle paint protection.

    It's funny that you mention about just letting it rain to clean it. I was talking to a single woman the other day and she said that since she didn't have a man God provided her car wash. Cleaning a car is "man's job" lol.

    I got some guys I know that work for car dealerships telling that some of the car that is equipped with "paint sealant" ($800 extra), does not need to be waxed.

    Lot of this sounds like my BIL, says 'waxing' removes the FACTORY sealant and thus voids the warranty. I think he also 'hears voices.'
