Just thought I would share my bonehead move of the day. I was washing my baby and needed to dry the roof. I opened the drivers side door to stand on the floor and reach the roof. My heel leaned back putting pressure on the rocker panel (runs under both doors) and I hear a loud pop from all the fasteners breaking off the piece. Body place ordered replacement which has to be painted and $600.00 later I am back to square one! I know you can't stand on those pieces but this one is particularly weak in my opinion.

Holy cr*p, that sucks! Sorry to hear that, and thanks for the head's up. I will be more careful, for sure.

That sucks, I’ve got one too...I keep mouthwash in the center console, and apparently didn’t close it properly once before putting it back. Next time I went into the center console the alcohol from the mouthwash had eaten away at the felt liner. I thought I could just replace the inside lining plastic piece, but the dealer told me no, said I’d need to replace the entire center console, which is something like $500. I chose to live with it as is.

An expensive oops, but at least your console smells minty fresh.

The road in front of my local car wash has a 70mph posted speed limit, so I air dry mine. It's amazing how quickly the water is blown away at 70+>:)... But thanks for the info.

I did ceramic pro on mine and once I’m done washing and rinsing, I pull it into the garage and hit it with the leaf blower. After that, I have a beach towel sized microfiber that gets the last of water. I also use a foam cannon when I wash it, makes it so easy.

I have used a leaf blower before. Many car washes use something similar. I would make some sort of filter if I did it again. I hate the idea of dirt particles traveling at 120MPH crashing into my paint.
