    zilon paint protection, not happy!

    I paid Classic Cadillac in Atlanta $750 for this product and I am not a happy camper. They told me that I won't have to polish my car for 5 years, it also came with a written guarantee.
    4 Months later I have water spots on the front of my car that washing & even waxing won't remove. It's going to the dealer on Monday to see what they can do about it.

    I should have known better than to believe them and it really pisses me off that I fell for it. If it won't work for longer than 4 Months how in the Hell will it last for 5 years?

    NOTHING is going to protect your paint for anywhere near 5 years.

    They put some hyped up wax on your car and charged you a ridiculous amount of money.

    The most you can do now is see if they'll honor the warranty. The car simply beefs to be polished and waxed.

    Couldn't find anything on "Zilon", but did find "Xzilon"... $50 a bottle.

    If it's Xzilon...check that warranty's fine print. Remember reading a complaint about a 60 day time limit.

    All that garbage is nothing more than gravy for the dealer. Go to the car wash and pay $2 extra for the "wax" and it will look just as good. I hope you didn't pay for the "fabric protectorant" too or the "glass etching".
