    Just bought a 2013 Tacoma and wondering how to take care of the finish? Wax now or wait? What's the best wax?

    I agree with Beavis... Got the paint seal on my 2011 and it was a poor wax job and nothing more. I traded it in for a 2013 a week ago and waxed it right away with maquires....

    Wax or seal it right away. There is no wait time on factory paint because it's baked at the factory.

    I disagree with the cheap wax job comments with a quality sealant. Blackfire Wet Diamond is the best I have used. 39.99 a bottle and it will last forever.

    Does this look like a cheap wax job? All done by hand.

    don't wait to wax it, it does not have to cure. any good quality wax will do, I am sure there are some good sealants out there but regular washing and waxing will suffice.
