Simoniz GlassCoat

One of the additional items you can purchase from the dealer is this simoniz coating. The website claims the following:


When professionally applied to your vehicle, Simoniz GlassCoat polymerizes the clearcoat of your vehicle and forms a unique ceramic glass resin. Unlike traditional waxes and sealants that simply "coat the surface", GlassCoat chemically reacts and cross-links to the surface of the clearcoat to form a three dimensional network. The end result is an extremely clear, tough and durable ceramic film that adheres so strongly to the clearcoat that not even organic solvents can remove it! GlassCoat also provides you with a product warranty for up to 7 years on new vehicles and up to 6 years on preowned vehicles. If the process fails, the warranty will repair or repaint your vehicle.


Has anyone heard of this and is this worth the extra money (I have not found out yet what it would cost).

Nothing but bad reviews on the net, I'm staying away from it and sticking with my quarterly clay and wax. Let me know how you like it if you decide to take the plunge...

Throwing money away buying anything from the dealer

It's a 500 pct markup

Sounds like I should just wash and wax the car myself. Thanks.

greycar..........

This is an insurance policy. The maker sells it to the dealer for low cost and the "professionals" (yeah right) at the dealership apply it. There are hundreds of these products out there and each dealer chooses the one that is the best deal for them. It's all in the fine print, you MUST read it to find out the good and the bad. Very little is good. As glen said the markup is up to 500% and the product is no better than those that can be bought off the shelf. There are better products available but you must research and educate yourself.

Wash & Wax makes little sense, wash & SEAL makes good sense. Exception? Collinite Wax #845 and others..

i have about 20 bottles of it. i used it on my moms civic and it held up for about 6 month on it. very easy to apply, no need to wipe it after so i cant say anything bad about it
weather has to be warm though becouse it has to dry, it was on white car so i cant tell if it made it any shinier or anything
my friend said dealer paid like $10 for bottle

At $10 a bottle for a wipe on walk away sealant I'd use it. As far as the dealer charging $500+ there's no way.

agree with you. thats way too much what dealer charges but then again whats cheap at dealership. from video that i seen they went through 100+ car washes with that stuff on and was still there so it doesnt sound like a bad product but deff not worth $500, cquartz is cheaper then that
