Default 2016 Accord Sport Black.. advice for new car?

Hello, first post here... Just purchased my 2nd honda (first was a 1994 prelude SI) and I will say that I am astonished what 25K will get you minus some of the expensive bells and whistles that enthusiasts don't really care about.

My car is black on black and I would like to hear some thoughts on caring for a brand new car, exterior and interior as its the first I have ever owned!

Thank you so much! pleasure to be here

Hello, Matt... welcome to the forum

You've made a great selection with the 2016 Sport. A new car's appearance today is much easier to maintain than those of 20 to 30 years ago and Honda uses a terrific clear coat.

Selecting a wax is often a personal preference, I like ICE by Turtle Wax, I use the liquid.. easy to apply, easy to remove... and Meguiar's offers a large line of products. The key is using a soft & CLEAN applicator... and also something like a terry cloth.. soft/clean remover

As with any car car product, never store in the trunk... too hot/too cold... store indoors at room temperature

Have fun

Prospector, what do you think about the Wet Paint brand?

Whatever wax and sealant decide to use stick with it. Swirl marks on black appear overnight and a good wax and sealant is mandatory on black paint
