I have a black fusion its about 2 months old and theres some small scratches on it, I was just wondering if there is anything to clean the car with that would make it look better like wax or anything?
Thank You

Get used to those small scratches with a Black car, they show up like Zits on a Teenager!!
Careful when you wax it DON"T use a round swirling motion when you wax, go side to side or up or down, this will reduce the "swirl" marks.
Use a good quality name brand wax, like Zymol or Meguires Gold works great on a Black car or any dark color, very nice deep shine.

Sounds like you need to polish. Scratches can usually be buffed out with a buffer and a polish. There are different types of polishes, the more abrasive ones are for deeper scratches and the less abrasive versions are for swirl marks and light scracthes. Meguiars has some info on their site but the products that they sell in the stores (such as their gold class wax) are more for amateurs. However they do have a professional line that is very high quality and is available on the net. www.autogeek.net has a tons of info and they have a huge assortment of brands to choose from including the meguiars line. autopia also has lots of info but their product line is much much smaller. I personally use pinnacle XMT series for my polishes mostly because it is designed for machine use and can be used in the sun. But there are other brands that do this as well. Whatever you do end up doing just make sure you top it all off with a coat of wax, any polish will remove the existing wax you may already have.

zymol is AMAZING.

i bought a bottle yesterday and did my first wash and it went on good and came of great. just make sure you spray a little water on afterwards to take the residue off.
