The auto maker is testing a new type of paint that repels mud, rain, and dirt to turn the Nissan Note into a "self-cleaning" car.

Cars don't wash themselves. Owners have to either put in the time and effort to clean them up themselves at their own driveways or shell out a few bucks so the nearest car wash can take care of it.

That may all change with a new technology that Nissan in Europe has been testing on the Nissan Note. The car brand is doing tests on an innovative paint technology that repels rain, mud and dirt.
