Default Filthy Engine Compartment

Not sure if anyone else has the same issue, but I have noticed my engine compartment on y 2013 seems to get a lot dirtier than my 2008. I do work in the oil/gas field so i am up and down dirt roads a lot. Every square inch of the engine compartment is covered with dirt and dust. The 2006 I traded in never got this dirty and spent nearly 2 years up and down these roads, My 2013 has only been 2 months and 5K miles.

after cleaning the engine compartment, try hitting it with Sonus trim and motor kote.

excellent excellent product and it is negatively charged to repel dirt and dust.

im suspecting your dealership dressed the engine with a greasy/silicone based dressing that is just attracting the dirt and dust.
