Dealer is trying to get me to buy a paint protection product called (PPS). Is it worth it for a new car or am I wasting my money? What else do you recommend would be better. I live in VT and need to protect my new car paint. Thank you!!

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Debbie Lee, President at Professional Car Care E. Rivera, I always recommend paint protection. Buying from the dealership also allows you to get the warranty. Auto Part Stores do sell different products that you apply yourself but I am unaware of any that offer warranty. Debbie Lee

Wendy Engelberg, Director of Operations and Founder at Autovisuals The paint protection is a very good product. However, it is very expensive. If you store your car in your garage, take care of the exterior including touching up and chips and scratches, in the long run, it is more cost effective NOT to do this. If you have to repaint any part of your car, or even touch up small areas, paint will NOT stick to the paint protection, so it must be removed anyway and reapplied. Wendy,

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Not familar with this product. Does it come with any guarentee? the best way to take care of a car*s body and especially the underbody of a car is by taking it to a car wash. Having a ggod wax job every fall and spring will also help.
