Re: Car wash company no longer washing older Jeeps

Ditto for Waterway Car Wash in the Kansas City area!
I am the original owner of a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland and I have 102,500 miles. NEVER have I experienced any sudden acceleration issues nor have I heard of any until the Waterway issue.
My opinion is that Waterway employees are the cause.

Whatever the cause.......the numbers do not lie. The insurance company pays claims. It doesn't do that blindly. It looks for patterns and such for its own purpose. And it found one......like it or not.

And the poster that thinks its a conspiracy call the place and ask them. Its a chain of car washes reported on all the news channels.

Since like 95% of people on this forum my jeeps and my other suv rarely see more than gravel roads I could care less about your off road comment.

Still no facts. Cause you cannot find any friend/

Re: Car wash company no longer washing older Jeeps

Rob's got a point.

Insurance companies have employees to find out ways for them to pay out less.

Even though it may very well be the employees fault during all these incidents nationwide, if that chains insurance carrier says dont wash these jeeps and if something happens if you do, we are going to hang you out to dry.

So in doing so the car wash simply covers their ass by not accepting your jeep to be washed.

And to say stats mean nothing, that's just insane. Business' are built and kept running because of stats. LOL

They don't try to find out ways to "pay out less," they just investigate claims so they don't pay out on losses that aren't warranted. There is a ton of potential for fraud in commercial insurance.

Re: Car wash company no longer washing older Jeeps

The original "unintended acceleration" was stirred up by the Audi 5000 Series in the late 80´s and led to a significant drop in sales at that time. As I remember the problem was pinned down to the position of brake and gas pedal wich was -for american feet- kind of too close, a genuine technical problem never existed.
However, this led to the shift levers only be able to be released as long es the brake is applied, thus more fool-proof. For the washing belts: Is it possibel, that the lever is freely moveable between neutral and drive? that might explain some of the problem (I dont own a WJ, so dont know).
Of course insurances settle claims, however, this does not explain the reason behind it.

Happy Day

Achim
