2 months ago, I bought a Black 2013 Dodge Avenger and it's getting light scratches on the paint. They're not deep but they can be seen. I remember seeing a commercial not long ago about a product that can get light scratches out. Does anyone know of this product or any similar to it? Thanks.

Sorry, I don't have any help for you but did want to say congrats on the new car. I have been thinking of getting an Avenger or maybe a Challenger as my next car.

Quixx Paint Scratch Remover

I've bought that stuff before, and it works pretty well.

Just a heads up.

Sorry to hear that :(

My first 4 cars were black.

3M light compound with an orbital...be very careful not to burn the paint. Meguiar's Ultimate Compound gave me good results too.

It works out better to do a larger area or whole section so you don't leave fade marks.

I went thru a ton of wax owning black. Hand waxed religiously every other month.

What kind of scratches are they? Just surface scratches/swirl marks from dirt and dust? Or more like key-mark scratches?

My car is black and it's a giant pain to keep looking nice, it seems like mine scratches just from washing and drying. I use Turtle Wax T-3KT Black Box Kit on mine, and it will hide swirl marks and stone chips fairly well, but it usually only lasts a week or two. The only way to get rid of them completely is to clay bar and buff with a DA buffer. Even then, it won't take long for them to show back up. 'Tis the double-edged sword of the black car - when it's clean and polished, it's the best-looking color there is... for 10 minutes.

EDIT - just wanted to add, Dodge has come a long way in the past few years, especially interiors. Their new cars are miles ahead of anything from even 5 years ago. I would actually consider owning a new Avenger, which is something I never would've said about an 08-10 version. So, congrats on the purchase.

Black paint jobs require a lot to keep them nice. Good to hear you are taking pride in your car.

A buffer and buffing compound
