What types of aftermarket car products are a waste of money?

I want to keep my car in top-notch shape, but I don't want to pay for useless products. What types of car products are a waste of money?

Several car products may be a waste of money, but some of them are subjective. However, some products that you should almost always avoid are:
  • Sonic deer repellent systems
  • Additional unnecessary lighting
  • A wrap-around rearview mirror
  • Various cleaning products; make sure to read reviews
If you want to get more technical about your new or used car, any product that doesn’t maintain or increase the value of the vehicle is a waste of money. So make sure to think long and hard about whether a product is ideal for your car! Other than that, make sure you get the right car insurance to protect your investment if you add aftermarket products to your vehicle.
