    Does anybody know if there is a touchless drive-thru car wash on Oahu? Sometimes I just want to run the Taco through real quick but I don't like the ones with the brushes because my last Taco get scratched by them. Thanks for the help!

    No touch less is my understanding. Would love one for the new car in between hand washes.

    I dont know of any either. I really dont think we have any here on Oahu, or any island for that matter that I remember seeing.

    I went to that new one on Kapiolani, the Car Parlor. Just because I needed to wash the salt off from the beach and don't have time to do it myself. My first automated car wash that I've been to in over a decade. It has the brushes and suds up with a pretty neat light show, my kid liked it. As for the wash, it was ok, bad thing is it that it showed all the scratches that my truck already had, lol. Whatever wax they used is still beading 2 weeks later.

    there's a touchless one in Kailua, enchanted lakes shopping center texaco...unless they took it out. big L-arm pressure washer orbits the vehicle a few times depending on what you pay for.
