We all love how shiny a new car can look, but after years of sun, rain, and wear and tear, your vehicle can look pretty dull.

One product promises to bring it back to life. It’s called Detail Doctor, and it claims it can restore your ride's leather, vinyl, and plastic surfaces to showroom new.

The shine is supposed to last at least six months.

Quita decided to test detail doctor on Rosie, one of KVUE's photographer’s 1998 Isuzu Rodeo.

Detail Doctor says you can use it on bed liners, bumpers, door handles, mirror covers, moldings even headlights.

Detail Doctor contains linseed oil, which not only makes things shiny, it turns your hands into a greasy mess. 

After letting it dry, there’s no greasy residue, the shine stays put, and Rosie looks much better than it did before.

We’ll check back in a few months to see if the shine stayed put, but for now, Detail Doctor gets a thumbs up. It costs $15 at Walgreens.
