    Hello all,

    I just bought a 2005 Honda Accord EX-L, and I'm tickled with it. I do have a few questions now that I actually own a new vehicle (all of my others have been ~ 20 years old).

    What kind of car wax should I use? What would you recommend? What should I stay away from?

    Interior dash and junk: should I use armor-all? Again, what do you recommend and what should I not use?

    Leather: Any recommendations on leather oils or anything?

    Also, how about soap? I suppose I shouldn't just use dish soap and water to wash my car...

    Thanks in advance for the info. I'm just trying to keep my car looking good inside and out.

    also, there are smudges on the glass (plastic) between me and the dials on the dash (fuel, speedometer, rpm, etc). Can I use regular glass cleaner on it?

    I know the answers to these questions here and above are probably pretty obvious, but I really don't want to muck up my car so soon after getting it.

    Thanks all.

    You should be in the "That'll Buff Right Out" forum. It's just below this one on the forum home page.
