Anybody ever been the free car wash guy? I have. It isn't too fun. I completely understand them doing a lousy job. I remember being 15-20 cars backed up before and getting grief cause I wasn't going fast enough. Sprinkle in the detailing jobs and the new purchase washes and it gets a little crazy.

But also, a lot of the people doing it don't care--it's not their vehicle so why bother?

I will say, I tried my best to get them looking nice.

Major plus--I got to fully detail my truck whenever I wanted using all the dealers resources.

I don't get it... You brought your truck in "spotless" to get a free car wash?

That is stupid.

I don't have them wash it nor does it go through a car wash been burned before long ago with damage to the vehicles' antenaes ripped off, scrapes and scratches from the brush heads, side window on a cap broken, lic plate ripped off etc etc. The nice part about where I work 12 bucks gets me a hand wash and wax when I don't have time to do it myself.

I've owned a Toyota now for the last twenty years and have gone off to the Dealership numerous times and never knew them to wash your vehicle while there for a service. They should at least attempt to wash it for the prices they charge for a service.

I wouldn't take a vehicle to anyone else but a professional to wash it. The church groups may be the worst, old grundgy towels, rocks stuck to them, tar from one vehicle transferred to another etc...best just to give them a donation. Some car lots do a decent job but again don't be surprised when you see a new scratch after they wash it.

I love Toyota of Boerne (bought 3 Toys there) but since Vic Vaughan built their in-house prep/wash center, there washes have gone straight down hill. Just there this past Wednesday and had the oil changed, etc... got the wash for free. But it's not so much a wash is it is "dirt displacement."
