Look down any vehicle care aisle and you're likely to see several brands of car wax. These products help protect your car from rain, sun, and pollutants, while giving it a beautiful shine. As a car owner, you need to understand what car wax is and why it's important for your vehicle's exterior.

A typical car wax is a mixture of wax, oil, and solvent. The wax can be natural or synthetic. The oil and solvents help soften the wax and make it easy to apply. Its primary job is protection. It provides a barrier between your car's paint and the elements. The wax also provides a shiny finish that just looks good.

Wax should be the last thing you do after washing your car. And most experts recommend applying wax three or four times per year. Let the service department here at BMW of Visalia help you with all your car care needs.
