Since this thread has now gone completely off topic, I thought I would jump into the fray.

Insurance companies certainly do find ways to pay out less - this is why they ask you health questions before life insurance, check your driving record before offering you automobile insurance and ask you if you live within 500 feet of a fire hydrant when purchasing home insurance. If their algorithm spits out that you are more likely to make a claim, they either refuse coverage or up your premiums to the point where, statistically, they are likely to make more than they will pay out.

The company insuring these car washes is doing the same thing. For whatever the underlying cause, their algorithm has calculated these specific models are more likely to be involved in an accident than others. Alternatively, the legal representation from the car wash(es) could have made the same assessment - the risks associated with washing these vehicles is greater than the money they make washing them.

Just the way it is. Doesn't mean that the car wash industry is out to get Chrysler, or that Toyota paid the car was companies to keep their unintended acceleration problems out of the limelight. It also doesn't mean that these vehicles are any less safe. All that it says is that someone, somewhere has decided its not worth it to wash them.

And for the poster who stated statistics have nothing to do with anything - I assure you, many, many decisions (both big and small) are made following statistical analysis of the relevant data. Whether it is deciding if a drug is safe to go to market, or whether the peanuts should be grouped with the popcorn or the potato chips in the supermarket - someone has analyzed the data using statistical methodology to draw inference from a small study to the general population as a whole. This is how informed decisions are made.

Re: Car wash company no longer washing older Jeeps

I went to get a chip in my windshield filled at a chain car wash.

He said you get a free wash and detail.

then came back and asked what year my jeep is.

He stated that his manager said we cant have any jeeps go through the car wash thats older than 2011.

NOW for some facts!

the 93-98 grand cherokees had a problem with a part being faulty causing the jeep to engage into drive.

How do i know this?
My friend was crushed by her jeep when it engaged into reverse and pinned her into her garage wall.

She was pregnant and it killed the baby. She finally settled with Chrysler and won her case 3 years ago.

that incident happened it 95.

I know the wk is 2005-2010 but i doubt insurance companies want to risk it.

look up the recalls from those years (93-98)
and you will see

Dude I'm talking about insurance companies having people who analyze data in order for them to cover their ass and not to pay out on claims by giving their policy holder notice that A wont be covered if B occurs due to our data that was compiled.

I'm not saying that ins companies have people going around denying claims just so they dont have to pay for no reason.


So what insurance company do you work for btw?
