OK I don't Know what You All Know , But I'm sure Your Not Suppose to Wash - these New Paint Jobs in the Sun Let all the Water Bead up
On Paint then Walk Away . .

This is Exactly what a Lot of Dealers are Doing ! HELLO
So You All that have Paint Clear Coated Etching - Marks from Water - should be Checking and Seeing Dealer Immediately !
Actually the Service Mgt. - is where those Type of Issues Go . . :angel:

I don't ever Remember seeing this Water Stuff on Alu. Hoods on Volvo's , so Is It a Honda Thing or Higher Acidic Rain ..
I have seen Dealers Wash these New Honda Cars & Honda Trucks and Leave those - Right in Blazing Sun !

I for One or Honda should Instruct the Dealers to do that At - Night or Late Evening . .

Now that said - If Your Dealer has the Hand Free or No Touch - as in Touch-less system on the side of their 4 Million Dollar Dealership , then Yeah don't need to check very carefully ..
Seems many Older or Outdated Dealerships - don't do Bird Poop Control or Daily , Weekly Vehicle - Protection - very well . . ( City Pollution ) . . Does Wonders for the Paint . .

This is why I always recommend to any owner that's serious about their ride to find a reputable detailer to give it a once over initially, then follow ups. I learned over the years that most dealers are terrible in this department.

Yeah That's What I'm Thinking Also !

Butt - just - Witnessed It Last Week .. had to ask Myself what the Heck are They doing like 10:45 AM on Scorching 91 Degree . .

I have Not seen Issues on Other Vehicles , but Hey I was 800 Miles North for last 45 Years .. , I also Know those Dealers had Their Own Wash Bays , some even had Touch less ..

I have to say there are a lot of , Half - Baked - Things that get done in TN . . seems like they are all in Drive Through - Hurry - which ends up Costing More in Near Future ..

My progression went from Armor All, to Mothers, Meguirs, Chemical Guys, and now HydroSilex.... Chemical Guys, Mothers, and Meguirs all have awesome products. I was going to do the Chemical Guys Jet Seal, but I gave HydroSilex a shot. Looking for longevity and protection since I work Electrical work/Construction, and a whole lot of Interstate driving.
