    I would love to see how soaking wet the interior is at the end of that... I agree with the.sight.picture, this is why I wash my own vehicles.

    how about toyota just refund us the "complementary" price of the car wash? Let us do it ourselves or take it out the balance of the bill?

    I never owned my truck in the period where I could have gotten the free dealership washes, but if I did I never would have let them do it.

    This is always why I always wash my own. I don't even like the automated ones.

    With the over-the-shoulder moves, the kung fu deep lunges and the fancy swirling of the wand, it's obvious he's doing it all for show.

    I'd be sooo upset if that were my car.

    I've seen locals that do worse. Purple power on the wheels or body, using shammys to dry, dirty bucket and wash media...all that stuff is just as bad. Tho, worse in the case of swirls.
