How Does Ghost Shield Work?

Ghost Shield is a urethane film that is transparent and durable. It’s scratch, tear, and puncture-resistant, providing a strong protective layer between your paintjob and the outside world. Ghost Shield’s virtually invisible film is capable of deflecting and absorbing impact from road debris like rocks, stones, sand, trash, and insects.

There are three package options for Ghost Shield, depending on the surface area of your vehicle that you want covered.

  • Basic Package – Covers the lower bumper
  • Standard Package – Covers lower portion of hood and fenders, entire front bumper, headlights, and side mirrors if painted
  • Premium Package – Covers entire hood and fenders, front bumper, headlights, and side mirrors if painted. Basically, this protects all surfaces from the front of your doors forward

Ghost Shield is applied by technicians certified through 3M and Venture Shield so customers can feel assured it is being applied correctly. Ghost Shield also comes with a 5-year warranty and can be removed without residue if you wish to sell the vehicle.

How does First Class Paintless Dent Repair Work?

Most drivers in our country today find themselves in a crowded parking lot several times a week, if not every day, so it’s more than likely that you’ve parked next to a careless driver within the last month.

What would usually be a giant headache is now an easy fix with Santa Barbara Auto Group’s First Class Paintless Dent Repair. Paintless Dent Repair is a non-invasive repair process for minor dents and dings that keeps the factory finish on your car for years.

Protect Your Vehicle’s Paint Job with Cilajet Paint Protection

Customers of Santa Barbara Auto Group are offered industry-leading paint protection through Cilajet bonding.

Drivers from Santa Barbara and the Southern California region are no strangers to the damaging effects the outside world can have on the exterior of their vehicles. Something as casual as parking under a tree can leave your car with ugly, long lasting sap-stains that are hard to remove. Through Cilajet paint protection, drivers can put these worries to rest. Cilajet paint protection, offered through Santa Barbara Auto Group, guarantees your vehicle maintains that “new finish” look for up to ten years! Cilajet also offers interior protection so your car feels brand new for as long as you own it.

What does Cilajet Paint Protection Do?

At Santa Barbara Auto Group, you can have Cilajet paint protection applied to your vehicle by industry professionals. Cilajet acts as a sealant and bonds with the exterior of your vehicle at the micron level, creating a deep mirror-like finish. The sealant works to reduce surface imperfections such as webbing, fine scratches, oxidation, and fading. Some benefits of the exterior protection through Cilajet are:

  • Resisting contaminants from adhering to the surface
  • Repelling dirt, grease, bird droppings, tree sap, raw eggs, acid rain, salt & mineral deposits
  • Protects against rust and corrosion (due to salt and ice)
  • Helps eliminate brake dust build-up
  • Reduces frequency of car washing

One of the most appealing benefits of using Cilajet is their warranty programs. Cilajet exterior protection is offered with a ten-year warranty for new vehicles and a five-year warranty for pre-owned vehicles. Drivers can feel at ease knowing that any damage to treated exterior surfaces due to fading, oxidation, or weather-induced problems will be repaired/replaced and Cilajet will be reapplied.

Interior Protection through Cilajet

Cilajet applies their FAB formula to the interior fabric and upholstery to protect against accidental spills and stains. Creating a slick buffer between mess and material, FAB makes for a quick and easy clean-up for all incidences. Any permanents stains that occur within five years of FAB application will be repaired or replaced and FAB will be reapplied.

Cilajet also offers HIDE, a formula that protects leather and vinyl seats from drying, fading, and discoloration. If any of this occurs to your vehicle within a five-year period of application, it will be repaired or replaced and HIDE will be reapplied. Also, Cilajet offers rip, tear, and burn protection guaranteeing for five years that if the new vehicle experiences accidental rips, cuts, tears, burns or punctures less than two inches or loose stitching, the damaged area will be professionally repaired or replaced.

The goal of Cilajet is to maintain the new car experience for as long as possible so that every time you pull out of your driveway you feel like you’re leaving the dealership. Santa Barbara Auto Group supports this goal by offering Cilajet’s exterior and interior protection on all vehicles.
