Whether you apply it yourself or you have the techs at our DCH Honda of Temecula service department apply it, car wax is a must. Why? What is car wax? Simply put, it's your car's first line of defense against the elements.

Your engine air filter fits into the air intake and keeps a variety of particles from damaging parts.
