23.05.2011 Test win for SONAX XTREME Windscreen cleaner

In a test of windscreen cleaners in the current issue of the magazine „Auto Bild“, the SONAX XTREME Windscreen cleaner excelled again. Ten products were subjected to the stringent examinations of the test team – and the SONAX product deservedly attained top scores in the tested quality criteria, and came away with the best rating “very good”. The test categories under scrutiny were cleaning effect against insects and city grime, material tolerance to paintwork and plastics and stability with hard water.

In total the testers awarded just two “very good” and two “good” ratings, one product was rated “adequate”. In earlier tests cheap products were not at all convincing, but as the current test reveals expensive cleaners do not, by any means guarantee flawless performances. Three of the ten candidates received “unsatisfactory” ratings for attacking the paintwork and producing stress cracks in plastics. And although the paintwork can usually be polished out, plastics, such as are used nowadays for headlights and rear lights, can be irreparably damaged by them.

The test results can be read in the current issue of “AUTO BILD“, No. 18 May 2011. The detailed test results will soon be available online at www.autobild.de in the “Service” pages.
