Leave the tire shine off. It's a truck and you're a man!
I remember when I picked up my #369 red '03, I wouldn't drive it even when the smog was bad (which was often in So Cal). I will have had it one year as of the day before Thanksgiving, and to this day I've never driven in the rain, or even taken a hose to it to wash it. (I have no idea if the bed leaks.) I know thats silly, but I just drive my Toyota Tacoma when I know the weather's going to be bad. I just don't have time to wash cars. (I haven't even had it back to a dealer yet. I hear too many horror stories from the rest of you about the sorry, clueless dealer service departments.)
Do I need to bite the bullet and take it back to a dealer with a list of all the things I've learned on this forum that will need repairing soon? I'm afraid that if I wait, it will be out of warranty (i.e., drive shaft, scratched windows, tonneau hinges, etc.). What do you all think? :confused
