Ya'll sayin dont put the stuff on the paint because it what???
Well my ex-father inlaw,and i know it sounds stupid and i told
him so myself, but what can i say he used the stuff religously
on his entire care outside on his paint and inside on the interior
and really it looked nice, had been doing it for years in san diego.

Armor all took some of the paint, dye whatever you want to call it off of one of the door switch panels in an 01 supercrew I had. It was black underneath. Some parts are molded in color (usually the softer parts). Others are painted/dyed. Just my experience. I know some people love the stuff, not me.

Ive been using ArmorAll for years. Since I was old enough to drive. I have yet to won a car long enough to have the plastics break down from its use.
So I guess if nature takes hundreds of thousands of years to decompose plastic......and ArmorAll destroys it as fast as some say, maybe ArmorAll is on the wrong business.

Armor-All used to have a problem with fading and cracking interior plastics/vinyl. This was due to several factors, including Armor-All containing 'bad' silicones in their formula. Cars at the time also had vinyl coated foam dashes, which didn't help the situation any. Armor-All has since switched it's formula and now dashes are molded plastic. The worst problem you might encounter now days it's fading, which is exactly what you are trying to prevent.

I still would not recommend it to anyone. Go to most any auto parts store and pick yourself up a bottle of Meguiars Natural Shine Rubber/Plastic. It leaves the dash looking and feeling like it did the day it left the factory. You can make the product shine up your dash by adding additional coats. Natural Shine also leaves your dash feeling dry and natural, not humid and sticky.

I put it on my 1975 original vinyl, motorcycle seat. It works great as far as I can tell. There are no cracks, its not stiff, and it seems to soak it up. It has to be better than nothing on a seat that old. I have no complaints about it (seems like I may be one of a few).My dad swears by the stuff on vinyls, dashes, etc. His trucks have been in great interior shape over the years.

My mom's been using it on her 2000 Silverado since the day we bought it, no problems and the dash looks great. I'm using it on my Ranger now, no problems, and I doubt there ever will be any.

I have used it several times without having any problems, but since I have heard so many mixed reviews I will probably just switch to different brand

i cant stand the stuff, might as well spray the dash down with baby oil and let all that dirt stick to it!

nothing like rubbing your hand on the dash and getting oil on everything you touch for 5 mintues

I prefer 303. I can use it on plastic, rubber, wood or paint. It has great UV protection. Started using it on my RV for the rubber roof and seals. Leaves a clean shine.

I only use it on my tires. I've used the gels & the sprayons and same thing every time. When it's time to clean the tires I get that thick residue that is hard to wash away, when I use a brush it just gets into the brissels and I have a hard time cleaning the brush.(and the tires are still gooy with that residue). I resently went back with Armor-all, I used it back when I had my first car with no problems. I apply it with a spong that was meant for the gel wheel dressing. I use the no touch sprays to do my wheelwells.

I haven't used it since 1987 and 1988 when I had to replace my mother's dash in an 85 Crown Vic. Back then, Armor All would seal the pores in the material. When the material would expand/contract from heat/cold, it would not breath and would crack. I have since heard they have changed their ingredients, but still do not use it and never will.

I use Mequiar's at times, but prefer a manufacturer named Fuller's. Either that or baby oil or suntan lotion. Anything good for your skin is good for your interior. Baby oil can leave a shiny coat that glares in the sunlight, but soaks in rather quickly in sunlight. Suntan lotion is good also and leaves a nice scent when the sun hits it.

I had originally voted yes, but I would like to resend my vote.

After a good cleaning this week I have noticed two cracks starting in the dash! They were not there a month ago and the only thing that they see is AA. I discounted the crack in my first truck's dash, but two in a row is enough to make me switch.

I think that I will try Mother's; "the stuff smells like cherries for gods sake, CHERRIES!!!!!"
