Full Service Car Wash

Full Service Car Wash

Aventura, FL

31 December 2005

I was so angry the entire trip that my car was the laughing stock of Florida! We drove from Detroit to Miami and the Zern was covered in dust and dirt and (most embarassingly) salt residue from the slushy city. I kept my eyes open (as did Don) for the first car wash place I could find. I finally found this one next to the Aventura Mall, so I gave it a go. As I pulled up, I realized it was a full service place. Now I don't want to say I'm cheap but I'll go ahead and say it anyway. My car is freaking expensive as it is, I can't be pouring an unlimited amount of money into it! So imagine the look on my face as the girl who pays $2 or less for a wash is handed a "menu" of washes to choose from, starting at $14 and ending at $35!?!? I ended up arguing with the guy and I paid $19: $14 for the car wash and $5 to get the extra tire and wheel treatment (cuz if I'm going to go, I'm going to go all in). I could have paid more, but the backseat was full of travel stuff and I didn't want to move it all into the trunk so I could get a shampoo. It turns out that I really liked the full service wash and am planning on making it a regular thing for the Zern.
