2013 Lexus GS 350: New Car Wash

August 8, 2013

2013 Lexus GS 350

I took our 2013 Lexus GS 350 to a new car wash this weekend. I give it mixed reviews.

The location, my driveway, was hard to beat. And the labor was cheap. I tipped-out the wash boy with a handful of Goldfish crackers and he was thrilled. But the car was only clean from the door handles down. What a disappointment.

    I hate washing the rocker panels and wheels, so me and the little guy can team-up. I'll get everything above the handles & the rest is all his. Then a trip for ice cream. Now that's a win/win.

    Your boy is lucky. I think most of the cars in my family when I was that little had too much rust to let me near them with a hose. :)

    the price is right, though. in 13 years, the washing will be accompanied by a great deal of whining, but the roof will be clean
