Taking good care of your Acura means keeping up do date with routine maintenance, but it also includes making sure to regularly wash, wax, and polish the exterior. So, how often should you wax your car? The auto detailing crew in the service center at McGrath Acura of Westmont recommends that you wax your Acura every 4 to 6 weeks to keep it looking like new. With the harsh summers and extreme winters in the Naperville area, it’s especially important to wash and wax your Acura on a regular basis in order to make sure that it is protected from the harmful effects of the weather.

Do I Really Need to Wax My Car?

The short answer is yes. Waxing your vehicle adds an extra layer of protection on top of the clear coat, so that when you wash the car you’re not harming or compromising the paint job. You should wash your car every 2 weeks, wax every 4 to 6 weeks, and polish twice a year.

How to Wax Your Car

  • Use a high quality carnauba wax.
  • Wax one section of the vehicle at a time, using a microfiber or foam applicator.
  • Use small circular motions when applying the wax.
  • Let it dry so that it leaves a hazy film.
  • Once dry, buff it out with a microfiber towel to get that showroom shine.
