Nissan Altima Owners Manual: Waxing

Regular waxing protects the paint surface and helps retain new vehicle appearance. Polishing is recommended to remove built-up wax residue and to avoid a weathered appearance before re-applying wax.

A NISSAN dealer can assist you in choosing the proper product.

● Wax your vehicle only after a thorough washing.

Follow the instructions supplied with the wax.
