Rated 1 out of 5 by from This Product is Worthless I bought the Turtle Wax Bug & Tar Remover to remove the "love bugs" from the front of the vehicle. I followed the directions exactly. The Bug & Tar Remover did almost nothing to remove the bug stains. I was better off spitting on a cloth and scrubbing the bug residue off with a lot of elbow grease. I'll not buy more Turtle Wax products in the future.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from question The product says "this product also leaves a shiny protective wax barrier that helps prevent future bugs and grime from sticking to exterior surfaces." But the demonstration video says "Remember, you're gonna want to follow up with a wax to put protection back on"... so which is it???

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does Not Work Renew Rx does not remove tar. I followed directions explicitly and applied it twice to the same spot. It became a smeared mess. I have an old bottle of Turtle Wax Bug and Tar Remover (same UPC) that is not "Renew Rx." I used a small spray of it and off the tar came. Go back to the old formula - it works.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad results I followed instructions with less than satisfactory reslults--repeated the directions again for longer product exposure--I can still see/ feel the insect remains. I will apply to the same frontal area for several minutes for a final test and if no results are forthcoming, I will take it back to the store..

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tar specks Bug and Tar Remover will not remove the small speck of tar spray from my car. In addition to following the direction, I let the spray set for 10 minutes, then used a buffer. After, 30 seconds with the buffer The dots were still there with no change. I'm at a lost of what to do next.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bug and tar remover I own a 2011 Harley Davidson Ultra Classic I purchased the Bug and Tar remover hoping that it would do the job. After 2 applications and letting it set for quite some time on the second application your product failed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easily removed tree sap The tree's in Michigan are really dumping the sap this year. Parked my black 370z under a tree for a couple days. I could not stand the mess and washed my car. The paint felt like sand paper. The paint was very slick before the tree sap. This product was recommended at the local parts store. I was shocked how well it worked, spayed on, let soak for about a minuet, wiped off. Paint is how as smooth as before and looks great. I now have a black Explorer to do. I hope it works as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made my wash much easier I live in Louisiana and have to drive through a swamp every day going to work. I get a lot of bugs stuck on my front bumper and they are very hard to remove. This product eliminated 90% of the effort needed to remove the bugs and even though a friend of mine who paints cars said that it was probably just another "gimmick product" I was impressed and pleased that it performed and did what you said it would do.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't do anything but create a bigger mess I have a 2014 CRV and an 04 SRT10 that I bought a bottle each for. We had a tree that after some rain decided it needed to rain sap on our car.We followed the directions. After numerous times of Spray, Wait and Wipe (peel sticking towel off vehicle) we repeated until both bottles were exhausted. Now I have a brown and black car with white sap marks on them.Little sap spots have now turned into white smears onto the finishes of my vehicles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy use, works great on impossible tar messes. I bought a white car last fall that was horribly full of tar spots and streaks. I was very worried and inexperienced with this type of clean up. I bought the Turtle wax bug and tar remover, followed instructions on bottle and it worked like a charm. I didn't have to rub or buff that much, all the tar came off easy in one wipe just about. It also removed little rust dots. Very happy. I recommend wearing protective gloves, possibly a mask. A+

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bug and Tar?? Well I didn't have a bug or tar issue but the label says it works on bird droppings and tree sap residue. I purchased it for tree sap removal, followed the directions and it didn't do squat!! Don't waste your money! I guess it's back to the store for a bottle of good old rubbing alcohol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't bother with another brand I purchased a M4 and had to drive 500 miles the next day to get back home. I probably had over 100 dead bugs caked on the front bumper, lights and mirrors. I purchased this product after a recommendation from a good friend. I wish I had a before and after picture because it was like wiping off butter after spraying this product. Best $6 I've ever spent. If anyone writes a negative review, they are completely wrong.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work well I have a 2010 Chrysler Town & Country that is silver. My wife encountered some road oil that left small spots of oil on the paint. It also had bugs on the front end from night driving. I bought the Bug & Tar remover. The instructions said to spray it on & wait one minute then just wipe it off with a microfiber towel. I sprayed this on the sides & front of the van & then tried the towel to no avail. No oil or bugs coming off. So I waited a little while longer. Same results. I finally got my bug scrubber & started scrubbing the oil off. This worked but not very well & took a lot of elbow grease on the oil. I finally got to the front end with the bugs & same result. This was after it had soaked 20-30 minutes. I finally washed this product off & sprayed Bleach White on the bugs. They instantly started rubbing off with little effort. Not at all what I expected & will never buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff!! This does everything it promises to do. I got blacktop (tar) on my Red chev impala LTZ after construction workers forced me thru lanes right after it was poured!! I was livid and sick at the same time. Watched a video by turtle wax on this product and tried it. Felt safe trusting this brand and it worked real well with no problems to the paint. Thank you!! Now if you could just give brains to the workers!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fails to Remove Bug Residue I purchased this product, in hopes it would "Easily Remove Bug Residue". I first cleaned and scrubbed the bumper with a brush. After it dried I applied the material as per directions, and after 1 min. it failed to remove the bug residue. I then applied the product for 15 min., again it failed to "easily remove bug residue. I finally did it the old fashion way "Mr. Clean, brush, and elbow grease!!!!"

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't Work to remove bug splatter. I wanted a product to remove bug spatter before I waxed. I bought this because the Turtle Wax name is synonymous with quality. Unfortunately this product does not work to remove bugs. I attempted to remove bugs from the bumper, mirror backs and hood with horrible results. I repeated the procedure several times, leaving it on longer each time, but the bugs were still there.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from auto owner Not very good at removing 'love bugs'. It managed to take the wings off and leave the guts on...at best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more bugs row under: ) Just love the product for removing the 100's of bugs and grasshoppers guts from the painted surfaces on our Holden. Some times it needs several applications and then a good polish to remove all the guts but in the end I've never seen a better product and no I don't have shares in Turtle products company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tar be gone! I haven't tried it on bugs (yet) but I had some serious tar splashed all along my passenger side and this product cut through it as if it were merely dust. I was prepared for several applications and lots and lots of elbow grease but it cleared it up with minimal effort and time. Thanks Turtle Wax!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome stuff! I've been I have been driving 3 hours round trip for work for the past 2 weeks across the Slidell,La. Twin span. Both the dragon flys and love bugs have been horrid on the front end of the car. This stuff works great! Love it! Totally would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent!! I use this on my Harley and other vehicles to get bugs, tar, and grime off of painted and chrome surfaces. I have even removed paint over spray, and baked on heel marks or asphalt from chrome exhaust pipes on semi trucks and motorcycles. It works great to remove soap scum and grime in a really nasty fiberglass type shower. I always use this product on spots before washing. Then on the whole vehicle after washing to make sure that anything left behind that soap wont remove is gone. It makes wax much easier to apply and gives the wax a clean surface so you are not rubbing dirt into your paint and contaminating your wax with dirt or oxidization from old paint. The only thing that I do not like is the spray bottle and I wish that it was still in the can with the lid. I find it best to spray it on soft cotton cloth or a sponge applicator and apply it by hand in the shade on a cool surface. Sometimes you have to let it soak on nasty stuff and use a little elbow grease. Great product, just please bring back the bottle it used to come in. Thanks again Turtle Wax

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! Rarely to spend the time to review things, but I just couldn't believe how well this stuff works. It takes everything off the paint and leaves a smoothly waxed finish. It made my windows look brand new. Just amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lives up to its promise This stuff does exactly what it promises on the label. It sticks to vertical surfaces no worries, and cleans off bugs really well from my precious Golf R. Turtle delivers with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Job I drove through a construction site and tar was kicked up all over my car. Bug & Tar remover took it off perfectly with no damage to the clear coat. I would highly recommend.
