I refuse to use armor all on anything. Bad experiences.... I found Formula 2001 to be better. Seems to last longer too.

Armor all is water based. When it evaporates, it dries out the surface even more.
Don't know if they changed the formula since I last had it crack my dash, but I use only producs that are glycerin or silicone based.

Armorall is bad. The ingredients harm your interior over time if you keep using it. Great marketting, POOR product.

I use Liquid Glass w/mink oil. I dont know if it's available in the US?

silicone eats rubber.


But what do you recommend if not armor all?

Hey, I use wax on the H. And also the plastic in front of the gauges. Stays shiney for a while. I know this thread is old.

armorall is ****. It also attracts dust like crazy.

I use Simonize on the dash and stuff. I carry a swiffer rag around in the car just to keep the dust off it.

I once armouralled my steering wheels and was racing with a cavalier Z24. well a bad thing happened in a curve ..I was doing almost 100 MPH and the steering wheel slipped in my hands so i winded up going through the wall barrier totalling my car ..

I was in the hospital for a month..
I tried sueing the armoul all company for that

You are an idiot? You tried to sue? Doesn't it say something like to not put it on your steering wheel? or maybe its common sense....

everyone gets different results on the same products they use, one may like it while the other may not. i've used armor all and found it not so bad, but there are other products out there that i've searched and found that are better....

I just can't believe how many bad comments you guys have for armor all. I've been using it for a long time and I have never had any bad experience with it.

You guys must be using it every freakin' day no wonder your dash are cracking. I only use it twice a month and it never gave me any problem at all.
