I think I recall my service dept mentioning it. Gotta remember, 99% of their customers probably consider a free wash to be a GOOD thing!
Vantage said:Hand washing, and specifically hand drying is probably the worst thing that happens. Drive around the back of some dealers and you will see ten towel boys eagerly installing swirl marks all over your car while drying up the remaining water.
It happens ALL the time and all kinds of dealerships. Make sure to tell the service advisor and usually it will be avoided. However, your first visit or two may require a note on the car if you're really paranoid.
Hand washing is the best way but use a clean mitt and clean towels to do so. Of course the quality of the towels and products you use will make a difference.WorldGoneWild said:What's the best way to wash a car?
