    Why wouldn't it? I have used it on my 2nd gen TSi and WRX since the first day I owned both with no issues.

    Am I missing something here?

    I use it sparingly and find the dash stays dust free longer...

    I've used it for years, and had good results.

    I use 303 Aerospace Protectant, it's not as greasy looking and might possibly offer superior protection.

    It's an old product - the first protectant available. Better products have come out since then.

    I use the low gloss armor all and no problems. Meguairs has some new stuff out for interiors might be worth looking into.

    I use it sparingly as well. I keep the wipes in my car, and if I have to wait for someone I'll give it a quick wipedown. But then I buff off the excess.

    I agree with 04blkWRX, find a newer product. In the short term, Armor-All is OK, but over the course of years (5+) it tends to dry out the vinyl somehow. I've seen a lot of seats on motorcycles from the 70s and 80s, and the ones that had lots of Armor All over the years were cracking at the seams and falling apart. I knew a lot of guys that swore off that stuff forever.

    I use Meguiar's. I think they last longer, plus they smell much better. Armor All smells like glue.

    That's why I like Armor-All. Reminds me of sniffing glue in kindergarten

    +1 for it drying out plastic and vinyl. I haven't used it in years.

    Becareful with it, If you spray a cloth then wip down the dash its ok, but if you spray the dash, specifically the airbag cover, that tends to crack quickly. It happened in my Eclipse, looked horrible. My friends Civic had the same problem, something with the cover being so thin.
