Consumer Alert; Car Dealerships Pull Off Wax-job On Un-suspecting Customers
New Car Dealerships Are Scamming Consumers Into Spending Big Money On Car Wax
While the product being applied to the new car may be a fine wax or a fine protectant it is likely to be a product that could be bought for $10 at the local auto parts retailer under a different name or a service that could be purchased at the local Auto Detail Shop for $29.95. There is no value in this add-on service and the term “Teflon” is only used as a marketing ploy.
This service option built into their “Dealer Packs” is a very high profit center for the dealership which is designed solely to separate the buyer from their money; a real shame considering gas prices have exceeded $4.00 a gallon.
These dealerships are proclaiming that this wax protectant will last on the exterior surface of the vehicle for up to 5 years. According to David J. Mazzarella, President and CEO of Mazzarella Car Care, there is no way that a car wax lasts up to five years; if there was a protection on the market today that offers that much protection then auto detailers, car reconditioners, and car wax manufacturers would be out of business.
The ONLY reason a wax protectant is applied to the exterior surface of an automobile is to protect the paint or clearcoat from forming oxidation. Oxidation is a type of rust that forms on painted surfaces. It is caused by exposure to a combination of UV rays emitting from the sun and oxygen.
