    Silly question about paint sealant

    My husband was looking through the glovebox while I was driving ( ) yesterday and he found a small bottle of paint protectant/sealant. Did anyone use this and is it something that is extra in case of a scratch or whatever??


    thanks!

    It's called The Auto Saver System Environmental Paint Sealant.
    I have something called the 'auto saver' on my car, an electrical thing to keep the rust off the body. Maybe it's something to do with that? Not sure if I should use it or not.

    i have just googled it and it seems to be some sort of electrical charge system to prevent corrosion (ships have something similar). I am assuming it is a dealer fitted item?.... i still dont understand what the sealant is for either - sorry.

    looks like you have purchased sealant with your Soul and you have an extra bottle for later use. Lexus doesn't do this anymore but they use to provide nice "gift-set" that had wax, leather care, and other care product in a nice box.

    I've been using Ice since I got mine and the shine is fantastic. The polysteel as a base may be a good thing. You never know.
