Meguiar’s products pass Consumer Reports testing

YONKERS, NY — Meguiar’s announced here that two of their products have been named best buys by Consumer Reports, according to a press release.

The Sept. 8 release stated that Meguiar’s NXT Generation Tech Wax 2.0 and NU Finish NFP-80 topped Consumer Reports’ latest tests of 19 car waxes.

Consumer Reports’ testing found that pastes performed no better than liquids in head-to-head comparisons, with both wax types having similar scores for ease of use. The better liquids tended to improve gloss while the best pastes lasted longer.

Still, none of the 19 products tested were good enough to be rated excellent. Most showed signs of deterioration within a few weeks, the release stated.

CR’s tests also revealed that premium car wax brands don’t necessarily out-perform their lower-priced counterparts: Liquid or gel waxes from premium brands like Autoglym, Eagle One, Mothers, Zymol scored lower than products from Nu Finish, and 3M, although Autoglym Super Resin Polish (liquid) and Mothers California Gold Carnauba Cleaner Wax (liquid) were both Recommended. Among paste waxes, Mothers FX Engineered Synwax 20011 (Recommended), and Mothers California Gold Carnauba Cleaner Wax were outscored by Nu Finish NFP-80 and Turtle Wax Synthetic Paste Polish T-465.

The amount of products in the professional market just astounds me. I don't know how you guys keep them straight let alone make decisions on which to use.

You can find the expensive Zymol online. Honestly though, for what some of their high end stuff costs, you can completely set up your own detailing cave at home. The polishing is the real key, not some expensive wax.
