Why is Detailing Important? It’s more than about “looking pretty.”
Auto detailing is a professional, thorough cleaning, polishing and waxing of an automobile, both inside and out, to produce a show-quality level of detail. But more importantly, it helps maintain and protect your finish.
“Remember, we don’t just do cars…we do Trucks, SUV’s and even Boats, too!”
Detailing is not only done to improve the appearance and maintain the “curb appeal” of your vehicle, but also to improve your ownership experience, and to maintain a higher re-sale value. Do you remember when you first got your vehicle, when it was brand new, and looked it’s best? A CarNu detail may be able to bring that moment back! A CarNu detail will help your vehicle look its best!

Our high powered extracting equipment deep cleans debris, dirt, grime and most oily residue spots on carpet & fabric. Not only will this help increase the appeal of your car, but extracting also kills germs & bacteria and helps to eliminate bad odors.
An external detail isn’t just a car wash. There are many things that can damage or discolor your paint job. Iron oxide flakes, more visible on white vehicles as a red dust, come mainly from the constant bombardment of metal brake dust that is in the air. Professional clay treatment can eliminate this as well as other damaging contamination such as tree sap, bug spatter, and bird droppings, which, perhaps surprisingly can cause serious permanent damage to a vehicle’s paint if not removed correctly. Even more surprisingly, several studies* have shown that a dirty car can increase aerodynamic drag, resulting in poor fuel economy, potentially costing YOU money.
Paint Scratch Removal
CarNu’s technicians can remove many surface scratches, swirl marks and scuffs through the use of advanced polishing techniques (ask us about this!). Scratches tend to dull a vehicles paint surface, which opens it to many conditions that can create further damage. If the damage is too severe, we may refer you to our in-house Auto Body Shop.
Paint Protection – Wax
Will give your vehicle an enhanced shine and protection from the sun’s harmful rays. Contrary to some stories, wax doesn’t last forever. Wax must be reapplied every 3 months in order to be effective. In harsher environments, it may need to be reapplied more frequently.
Paint sealant is a synthetic polymer, which actually bonds to your painted surface providing the very best protection and shine possible. Paint sealant should be re-applied every 6 months to a year.
Poor car care can result in a situation where it’s impossible to restore the car’s finish. Don’t let this happen!

General Car Care Tips for a Healthy Paint Finish and a Happy Wallet
1. Avoid scratches chips and dings when possible.
Scratches and paint chips are the most common and most harmful enemy to your car’s finish. The bottom line is that avoiding scratches is often the secret to keeping your car looking like the day you bought it. Hint: don’t follow flat bed trucks closely – debris often falls off the bed, even if it’s not readily apparent. And we’re not just talking about big scratches; dirt and grime, rubbed in while washing or drying, will act like sandpaper and dull your car’s paint. There is one basic rule, which will guide you whenever you touch the surface of your automobile: Anything that comes in contact with your car’s finish should be soft, clean, and NOT reused from wash to wash.
2. Avoid harsh elements and impacts.
Often, especially in the harsh Montana sun and wind, this means storing the car in a garage or covered area. If you can’t do this, the use of a car cover is highly recommended. A vehicle that is constantly exposed to sunlight and other environmental hazards will deteriorate quicker and require significantly more cosmetic maintenance.
3. Wax, wax, wax. Then wax some more.
In addition to providing gloss and depth, wax or paint sealant will also protect your car from the weather-related elements, including sunlight, and many other elements like bug splats and bird droppings.
4. Regular inspections.
A good habit is to make regular inspections of your interior condition and exterior paint finish. It’s far better to head off a potential problem, than to wait until it fully materializes and has to be repaired.
Fox News Reports the Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon will be available this fall with a new 2.8-liter 4-cylinder turbodiesel
Fox News reports:
At starting prices of $31,700 and $33,200, respectively, the diesels will deliver 181 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque that’s good for a max tow rating of 7,700 pounds in two-wheel-drive trucks, up from 7,000 for the V6.
The diesels are available only in Crew Cab configurations. They come with a six-speed automatic fitted with a centrifugal pendulum vibration absorber to reduce engine vibration and an exhaust braking system what works with both the cruise control on downhill stretches and with the pedal. A trailering package with hitch and 7-pin connector, electronic locking rear differential and two-speed transfer case on four-wheel-drive models are all standard equipment.
One thing that’s yet to be announced is fuel economy, but GM says it will beat the current gasoline four-cylinder’s top rating of 27 mpg. The most fuel efficient pickup on sale today is the larger Ram 1500 Ecodiesel, which gets 29 mpg highway and has a base price of $38,395.

“If you liked the previous Escalade, you’ll like this one. It’s sharper looking outside, more luxurious inside, and somewhat better to drive.”
“The Escalade may be all new inside and out, but the SUV’s basic idea is still largely the same as it ever was. That means big power, a muscular sound and a driving position that looks down on virtually every other vehicle on the road. If that’s what you’re looking for, the Escalade is still an excellent SUV for the job; only now, you look down from a slightly nicer perch.”
“The full-size luxury SUV segment has a lot to offer, but with an all-out redesign for the 2015 model year, the Cadillac Escalade has climbed back to the top of the pile.”
—Kelley Blue Book
“Fresh from a stint at finishing school, the Escalade retains its audacious charisma but now earns higher marks for poise and polish. With its impressive blend of style, technology and quality interior furnishings, the Escalade truly demands serious consideration from full-size luxury SUV shoppers.”
—Left Lane News

The 2015 Cadillac Escalade’s rich interior, impressive handling and exceptionally powerful engine cannot be matched by most competitors, reviewers say. . . A V8 engine powers the 2015 Cadillac Escalade. Test drivers say it idles quietly and produces the requisite power for reaching highway speeds quickly. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard. The EPA reports that the Cadillac Escalade gets up to 15/21 mpg city/highway, which is typical for the class. . . They report that the 2015 Escalade offers controlled handling, and they like its standard Magnetic Ride Control suspension system, which they note makes a noticeable difference in driving dynamics when switching between its Sport and Touring modes.

The Escalade is not only a strong performer, but it’s also our 2015 Best Luxury Large SUV for Families.
