^^^Unless going to a specialty product that is marketed to high end detail shops, I find Meguiars products hard to beat. I agree with the statement above. I however do keep Meguiars leather and detail wipes in my car. This way, if for some reason I need to do a quick clean up (picking up a client, want to impress my wife on date night...) I can wipe things down while my vehicle fills with fuel.I personally used Meguiars Gold Class Rich Leather Spray on my 2000 Grand Cherokee and it's kept the seats in great shape given the age of the vehicle. I avoid wipes and go for a bottle with a rag, you get better coverage and cost.
You and few dozen other Outback owners!If you don't want a shiny residue on your leather, or you want to make your shiny seat looks matte again, I've found this to be the best. I usually use a microfiber towel to apply, but I also used a drill brush attachment to really get the shine off of my 2012 Outback driver's seat.
For plastics, including exterior black bits:
I have used this to clean cloth door panels and to remove finger smudges from the headrests and headliner.
Can you tell that I've recently prepped my 2012 Outback for sale? Still deciding on Ascent vs. CX-9. ...and if I can hold out I'd like to see the new 2020 Highlander.
I generally use a vinyl/rubber cleaner for the dash. The dash and the tops of the door panels where it gets alot of exposure to the sun, I follow up the cleaning with the 303 Protectant. I have not tried the other 303 products. 303 is sworn by as the final coat protectant in the marine industry where the vinyl has exposure to the elements. A deep clean followed by the 303 protectant has kept the vinyl in our 2007 wakeboat looking almost new.Alright. You've all sold me. Does anyone know what the Premium dash material is made of? I can't find it in the manual. At least then I can get the right spray for the job.
No, I do not. I have only used the protectant. I have used Meguiers cleaners and conditioners and then after it is clean, I top coat it with the 303 protectant, only on vinyl/rubber type of surfaces. I have never tried the 303 protectant on leather. I have heard good things of their cleaners. According to their page, it should be OK for leather as well
