i agree. the dealership that i originally ordered my cube from tried to charge me a whopping $400 for that paint sealant crap and absolutely refused to order a car without putting the junk on before we picked it up. i told him we DID NOT want it, but he said they just do it on every single car they get in. so uh...why couldn't they have just not done it for ours? because they wanted an extra $400 in their pocket of course :roll:ChristineK said:Some dealers will offer such things as a way to add fluff to the profit for themselves. The metal is treated with an rust inhibitor and guaranteed for like 5 years or more ( I would have to consult the manual for the exact information) and the paint protector/sealant is a scam in "MY" opinion. I have seen this stuff in action and it is nothing more than this infomercial stuff sold years ago for you guessed it $19.99. I think it was called Touchless. Junk!
If Nissan thought it was necessary it would be on every car.
Just my $0.02
I'm in a similar situation. But even more obvious - the residue from the protective shipping vinyl was/is still visible!!! This would have come off if they had rubbed a product on the car. Yes, this is fraud.ChristineK said:a raised edge were the badge was, or even the evidence that water beaded up all around where the letters were (NOTHING,ZERO,ZIP,ZILCH,NADA) ??? I wonder why? because they applied nothing to the vehicle.
yeah, i couldn't believe it either. well, it would have been ok if they didn't try to charge so frickin much for some wax :roll:hana said:i can't believe some dealerships force you to purchase the paint protection.. i spoke to a friends husband that works in a body shop and he is going to pick up the wax from work and apply it for me and just charge for the wax, but i'll give him some cash for it :yes:
