#46 of 55 Paint problem with 2009 G37 sedan Obsidian Black
Mar 31, 2010 (10:44 am)
Purchased new 3/30/09 and noticed what looked like paw prints/water spots in the paint, The dealer attempted to get them out, but informed me they were under the clear coat and they could not buff them out without going through the clear coat. All they managed to do was put swirls in the paint. I have had the car for a year now, only 3100 miles on it, I travel extensively for work, and I am still trying to get them to address the problem. My next step is to have a high end body shop look at the problem and give me a written estimate to correct, e.g. paint, etc. I will meet with the dealer in May and then if necessary escalate up to Mr. Bill Krueger
Senior Vice President, Total Customer Satisfaction, in Franklin, TN. If anyone else has had similar problems I would like to hear how you fared with Infiniti.

I don't know if this will help you but I spoke with a rep for Infiniti about the clear coat. As you may know the clear coat is a self healing clear coat. They discontinued it for 2010 because of cost and cost to repair and limited people that could repair. Also, becuase it did not work OR did not work unless the car was exposed to direct sunlight and got very hot. Only then did it somewhat liquifi and fill in swirl marks, etc. I just wonder if the prints you see are actually the clear coat. Since you don't get it out much and I'll be you garage it, maybe you should put it out in the sun. With the temps TN gets in the summer, it might help.

Thanks for the information. I actually live in Georgia and when I am traveling keep the car under a good car cover parked outside my apartment. I am meeting with my Infiniti dealer next week and use the info you sent. Have a good day.

I used to detail my car by myself also, and I was using Zaino for waxing. And it was great. But recently, I started going to Detailxperts professional detailing services . It is a local auto detail shop here in Detroit. Good thing here is they are using steam and some specially formulated chemicals and wiping cloths that are eco friendly.
#51 of 55 The Protector and hood shield
Oct 19, 2010 (1:20 pm)
My husband and I just bought a 2011 G37x--our first luxury car. We have never purchased any of the rust shield/paint protection/"car bra" offerings for our other cars, but we're tempted to purchase some kind of paint protection for a car that's a step up in price. I know the protection offered by the dealer is wildly over-priced, but what are the non-do-it-yourself alternatives?

I use Zaino for my '04 Infiniti G35 Garnet Fire. This spring, I washed, clayed, Z-5, Z-6, then Z-2 & z-6'ed. Also, I z-2'ed a couple of months later. Getting to be more painstaking as I get older, but passers-by still comment on the shine/reflections. Yesterday, I got the car washed (drive through-hate 'em, but necessary evil) and Z-6'ed & car looks fine.
Zymol's Cleaner Wax is great- easy to use (don't let it dry!) then "spit (water) shine" & looks fantastic. It's sold retail for about $15, btw. Made my Grey '88 Cougar look wet.
Meguiar's Gold Class is easy to use, and looks great.
About 12 or so years ago, Meguiar's Deep Crystal System was a pain to use (3 steps) for me, and didn't look that great, but that was on an old ('83) Regal.
