Exactly. Any car wash that has stuff that touches the vehicle is potentially the devil. The "touchless" ones do not do a great job, but sometimes work in a pinch.
I still recall taking my former WK to an automatic car wash near Rochester, NY. Sat in the Jeep as it went through, and heard a single "thump" sound. After it was finished, the attendant came over with the rear wiper arm and said it was mine. I replied, "no, it is now yours."
he promptly returned with a manager, clip[board and paperwork in hand, and a refund was issued, along with an agreement that they would pay for the replacement of the arm/blade assembly.
I have to hand it to them for their prompt customer service, but never brought my WK back for that free wash they offered.
