I wanted to share that I had an awesome experience with Permagard, they have been fantastic! Megan was quick to respond to my questions and concerns and had someone sent out to me within a few days to replace the tint on one of my windows on good faith! Keep up the great service guys and thanks again!
Great Product , poor application
Last week I purchased a new Mitsubishi Triton GLX plus from Sutton's Motor Group Arncliffe.
I discussed having permagard put on the vehicle and paid $1173 combined with window tint and car mats.
I flew to Sydney picked up the car and drove home excited about my new car.
The next day after travelling home and doing 750km I washed the car as there was a few bugs splattered on the front.
I went and purchased new low pH car wash and whilst washing the car it was plain to see the permagard had not been applied properly.
Water beeded off parts of the car and not other parts, and to say I was disappointed was an understatement.
I purchased my brand new Mitsubishi Pajero Sport GLS in March 2019, I paid $1900.00 for window tinting and protection of my New cars paint work. I went and purchased low Ph car wash and a new sponge. I started seeing swirl marks in the Duco, I previously had Polaris on another car and I have to say, I never had a swirl mark. I am incredibly disapointed that this product does not protect the cars paint work, when I look at my new car I could cry. If I ever buy a new car ever again, I'll avoid this product, the result and alleged protection is not worth the paper it's warranty is written on. If this product is offered to you, just be aware the product does not live up to the hype.
Put to the test
Ok,here is my recent experience with Permagard
Went to a Medical Conference to Byron Bay resort,I was surprised there was no undercover car park, I worried as I had to leave my car under the sun unprotected from birds and weather.
The next morning I saw the car covered with birds poo, I panicked and I was worried as I know what bird poo can do to the paint.
My wife said don't worry,you have Permagard protection,I said yeah but I was still worried !!
Any way,went home after that (2 days),used foam lance left it to soak (PH neutral of course)

Promised a swirl free paint on my demo Sportscat by the dealer , what a waste of money , could have coated it better myself . Car was full of swirls . im very unhappy with Permaguard results and i have a coated car to compair it to
Hi i recently purchase the product for my toyota 86. I am happy how my car looks. Cleaning your car is very easy with this product. You dont need to buy expensive washing products and good thing is its life time guaranteed.
The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
Bought new car and the extra they charge for permagard which I agreed to payment plan with dealer, can scrub my car and the dirt marks still are there after washing, even Mazda washed it after month service and the dirt was still on it, they acknowledged it seems to not to the job it’s supposed to and arranged someone from permagard to call to re do it, still waiting but cancelled my payment due to come out, not paying for something that’s not working correctly, I just want it removed and no I won’t be getting it re done, I’ll go without and save $1600 thanks
New Audi Q5 Interior / Exterior treat with no significant difference.
I brought a new 2018 Audi Q5 in late November. This lady at Audi Center dealership was succesfull in selling me Interior vinyl, leather and exterior color protection which would keep dust away, take away swril marks after wash, repell water from surface and other listed paint protection. However, I cant notice significant difference between a non treated one vs mine. I Still see a lot of swril marks and water once dropped on the surface does not flow away easily leaving Swrill marks . I rang permaguard Warranty based out of Sydney and was asked to drop the Vehicle to be retreared back in December. But i still dont see any difference. I am again booked in for 2nd of March, lets hope for the best.
Some of the best Service I have experienced
What a great company. Product is great and leaves a great finish especially on a black car. Inside Leather and Carpet has been perfect for 5 years.
So after washing the car for years yep some swirl marks from not using a two bucket method (Mandatory on a black car) and Permaguard decided to reapply it and good as new.
Very impressed with the commitment to the product and car looks fantastic even for a 2010

Best product ever!
Our car has been treated inside and outside by Permagard on Monday (24/09/2018).
My wife and myself are absolutely happy and satisfied with the result. Our car looks like it just came out from the showroom.
We highly recommend this product. Not cheap, but definitely worth it!
Thank you Permagard. Well done!
Wonderful customer care and service My car looks brand new
Wow you should see my car now! After writing my first review I was contacted by Brent from Permaguard who was very happy to send our Jessie to my home. Jessie did a fantastic job on my car. My husband was amazed by the beautiful finish on the car after Jessie was done. It looks brand new. Thankyou Brent and Jessie. Your after sale service is outstanding and I highly recommend Permaguard to everyone.
We Just purchased our new car and our dealer offered Permagard Paint & Interior protection. Being a family of 5 with 3 kids we could not go past the interior protection. So we also opted in for the paint protection after reading some negative reviews we were a bit hesitant. I can honestly say this is a must! The paint feels smooth and glossy and the interior still smells new, Love this product. Will be getting this on all of cars from now on.
Big waste of money, bad customer service! Don’t do it!
Biggest waste of money and burned water marks in my paint which I had to pay to get fixed. It is meant To protect your paint but after it rained it burned water marks in my brand new Mercedes. They did a warranty and all they did was buff the car and take off my paint job and made it thinner and it happened again. All from rain! I payed a detailer to take it off and the water marks never happened again! Biggest waste of money I have ever spent! And it’s not cheap! Nearly $2k!

Recently purchased a new car late last year.
This product Permagard was offered by the dealer as a paint, plus leather and carpets protection.
Although the product is not cheap it has been worth every cent so far.
The finished paint detail is outstanding and has the appearance of glossy smooth glass.
Dirt and dust simply hose off.
The interior leather treatment will prolong the life of what it protects, carpets the same.
Comes with a lifetime warranty.
If you're spending many thousands of dollars for a new car, taking a look at this product is worth the effort.
