What's in the Wax on Your Car?

Waxing the car is part of routine maintenance for some people, but many don't know exactly what they are putting on their vehicle. If you're one of them, here's a quick primer to make you a more informed car owner.

Wax, which is a hard hydrocarbon when at room temperature, originates from plants and other natural sources, or comes as a man-made synthetic. Getting it ready for vehicle use requires the addition of oils and solvents to soften the wax so that it spreads easily. Most brands are a mix of more than one type of wax, and the oils and solvents used vary greatly.

Don't let car wax confuse you. Drop by the Land Rover Roaring Fork service center, and we'll fully explain car waxing. If you'd rather not bother with the hands-on work, we'll be happy to handle your car service needs.
