Our Review

Small Scratches

We have yet to find any car polish that gets rid of really big scratches. We have also found that many car polishes will do little or nothing for even small scratches. One of the reasons we like this particular Meguiars product is that it deals very well with smaller scratches. It is also great for getting rid of those annoying swirl marks and that makes a huge difference to the shine on any car.

Please never buy any type of polish believing that it will remove deep scratches. The best you will ever be able to remove is a few light ones and most of them should be able to handle swirl marks. We think that this is a claim that manufacturers should actually stop using.

The difficulty is how do you define a scratch mark? If the surface has been broken, then no wax or polish is going to fix it. Those with a little colouring in them may do a slightly better job of covering it up, but it sure isn’t going to get rid of it.

Check Amazon for Availability


The secret to using this application is to apply it to a small area and NEVER allow it to dry out. We would recommend an area of about two square feet at a time and really work the polish when first applied.

If you allow this polish to dry, then like many others, it is tough to get it off. This is especially true in warm weather.

Water Marks

The true sign of any good polish for us is if it can get rid of annoying water marks. This one did and it did it with some ease. Again the application is key and should be done as we have described above.

Clay First

When older cars look tired and worn, then typically you may have to use a clay bar first. We found with this polish that was not always necessary. It really does depend on the individual vehicle, but on a few we tried this polish restored both the gloss and the shine without the need to use a clay bar first.

So overall we really like this car polish a lot. There is no doubt in our minds that the secret to get the absolute best results out of the Meguiars Ultimate Polish is in the application. Apply to a small area and then polish it off for the very best results.

This is a dynamite product, easy on-easy off, great results!

I used it on a 14 year old Lexus with white metallic paint. Although the car has been well cared for, it had amassed its share of swirls, light scratches and bonded contaminants. I thought for sure I was going to have to clay it first, but as that’s a step I am not fond of, I thought I would take a chance and try the polish alone, I’m sure glad I did.
