Simoniz Glass Coat

I'm not new to the forum but it took me forever to figure out how to post something. I just bought a new truck and the dealer talked me into having the Simoniz glass coat system put on the exterior of the truck and also something simular for the interior. It cost me $329. And they said it's garanteed for 7 years. I got a bad feeling about this and afraid to ask. But here it goes... Does anyone think this was worth it?

Re: Simoniz Glass Coat

Usually that kind of stuff is a ripoff.

Simoniz Glass coat is not a bad product, its a typical glass coat from Japan. Similar tech as Cquartz and etc.

Not that I like it or anything, did some research and I agree.

I know people have trashed Simoniz and dealers that sold these sealants but maybe the technology has caught up with the hype with durable coatings that do last much longer.

Re: Simoniz Glass Coat

To Autogeek Online!

Personally, I know very little about it other than what I've read.

When buying a new car or truck the customer almost becomes numb regarding the various options, discounts, incentives, aftermarket products, "great offers". Compared to the actual cost of the vehicle $329 is a drop in the bucket and for all that protection, why not!

I don't think it's a bad idea or product but I'm skeptical of its clams and I DO NOT trust any car dealers...period. Do I think your money could have been better spent elsewhere? Yes, but that's water over the damn.

Another one of life's lessons....
