Red face Re: Are Drive-thru car washes a bad idea?

When weather or other circumstances dictate that it's not practical to grab a couple of buckets and do the job yourself, I think a touchless car wash is better than no wash at all.

One of my concerns with car washes - even touchless car washes - is how well and how often the filters are maintained. The idea of fine particles of dirt or road chemicals being blasted onto my car at high pressure makes me cringe just a little. My other concern is how harsh of soap and/or chemicals is the car wash using to break the dirt away from the paint without touching it.

But I understand that sometimes it's the only option.
