Author misses one of the reasons I wash my car. I do a better job than the cheese eating teenagers at the local car wash. $15.00 for a basic, car is not thoroughly dry when you leave and badly streaked when you get home, wash. Add $5.00 for the "wheel deal" and $3.00 for the presumptive tip = waste of time and money.
I only use the car wash when it is too cold to do it myself and to get the salt and winter debris off the car.
I think the "wheel deal" pisses me off the most. The rims don't get touched unless you pay the extra $5.00. Clean body and dirty wheels = waste of time and money.
Thanks for letting me rant!
