Do you take your car to an automated car wash regularly? If you answered yes, you may want to think twice about using one next time. Recently, a reader of Jalopnik took a video inside a car wash with his car’s dash cam. What happened there, is pure craziness.
The car wash horror picture show
As you can see in the video from Nick’s dash cam down below, the woman runs into some mechanical trouble with her Nissan as she heads through the prewash station. Nonetheless the car wash employee permits her to proceed into the main washer.
However, as she pulls in line right in front of Nick this is where the real trouble begins. At first, everything seems well. But right at the end of the car wash, it seems like the Nissan isn’t able to drive out of the car wash.
While the other cars are still in line behind the Nissan, Nick reports he tried to get a hold of the car wash’s employees by honking his horn. Apparently that didn’t help.
As you can see in the video, the woman in the Nissan tries to get out of her car. A few seconds later the car wash’s automatic trail pushes Nick’s car into the Nissan – four times. Finally, it gets hit by the next car, an SUV which finally forces the Nissan out of the car wash.
As reported by Jalopnik, the damage done was worst for the Nissan. Nick himself filed a police report and is thinking about suing the car wash for negligence. Anyway, he will probably not use a car wash again that soon.
What do you make of this? Who is at fault here? Did you have similarly bad experiences in a car wash yourself? Let us know in the comments below.
