    Ultimate Wax Liquid- Great Wax, Poor packaging.

    I bought the Ultimate Wax Liquid when it came out in January and been impressed by its ease of use, shine, and water beading. It's really impressive to me how little you have to buff off after it dries.

    My problem with it is this: While using it on my Mustang about 3 weeks ago, I was putting it on the pad on my G110 and dropped the bottle about 2 feet. It cracked when landing and now leaks in 3 places. This was a full bottle. I probably lost about 2-3 ounces of product after that happened and have wrapped the bottle in Saran Wrap. I am disappointed with that as I have dropped other product bottles, most recently NXT 2.0 without cracking them. I have been a Meguiar's user since the early 1980's and wanted to give feedback so they put it in a sturdier bottle such as NXT's. I have wondered if Meguiar's customer service does replacements for these situations. Anyone else have similar issues with these bottles? I know Gold Class is in a similar if not the same designed bottle.

    It never hurts to call the customer hotline and explain your situation.

    I guess some bottles are sturdier than others.

    I'm going to move this to the customer service forum just so they can properly track the suggestion. Sorry for the broken bottle, that's no fun!

    Might be a good place to add that I hope those new Detailer Line bottles find their way into the other lines...

    Just a side note: When those 'tops' showed up, I went Googling to see if I could find them. I PROBABLY found them them but was completely overwhelmed with so much information I gave up.

    They are out there, in fact Titebond Glue(s) uses them.

    Re: Ultimate Wax Liquid- Great Wax, Poor packaging.

    This is a very strange coincidence.... I read this post, then about three hours later waxed my car with the Ultimate Wax. I dropped the bottle about 2 feet off of the ground, and the top cracked off. Barely any product was lost, and I managed to put the top piece of the bottle back on. Unfortunately, anything made of plastic will most likely break when dropped from an excess of 2 feet.
    If you live around Charlotte, NC and would like your car detailed, PM me.

    I agree, but many of megs products plastic bottles are of a poor quality.
