At the Car Wash

Posted February 2, 2010

Prediction: business will be booming tomorrow at your local car wash. The grit, grime, gunk and brine from the recent snow storm have made a mess of our automobiles. With rain in the forecast today is probably not a great day for washing your car. But tomorrow should be sunny and nice.

Where do you get your car washed? Do you prefer an automated system or a fastidious detailer? Please vote for your favorite car wash.

    I highly recommend Pristine Auto Spa on Morrisville-Carpenter Road at Davis Drive in Morrisville. They always do a great job for a great price. Nice place and really nice people who work there. I take my car there at lunch since they are near a bunch of restaurants, and when I come back it is done. Anyone who works or lives in RTP, Cary or Morrisville should check them out.

    I agree! Magic Tunnel in smithfield. Best job with the best prices! They even clean your rims and don't charge you extra unlike a franchise car wash in Goldsboro and G-vegas!

    Magic Tunnel in Smithfield. They are the best without a long wait.

    Not sure the name of it- but the drive through place just up the street from Autobell in Garner. I drive thru and 5 minutes later the car is all washed. I can vacuum and polish at home.

    Bunkey's on High House Road in Cary.

    Oh, and to tennispro: that carwash is called Sudz Carwash

    I do it myself, any of the carwashes that you go out for that use brushes will put swirl marks all over your paint.

    Home or $5 automated--and not nearly often enough at either place, I admit.
