"Same experience with
as a few of the other people who have left reviews. I paid $80 for a passenger car detail (interior only). I inspected" my car after getting home instead of at his shop. As another commenter noted, it would not have done any good to question his work -- he does not appear to be interested in listening to anyone except himself. It appears that he attempted to shampoo the carpets; cleaned some of the grime off the steering wheel (I had specifically pointed that out to him prior to the work); and wiped some shiny conditioner on the dash. In fairness, he did voluntarily
the cruddy build-up off the headlight covers w/o being asked. However, I took my car in for a detail because I was seeking to have all the vinyl inside cleaned -- that did not occur in a meaningful way. Other than some of the dash immediately in front of the driver, and possibly a quick swipe on the door handles, the rest of the vinyl was not touched at all. I was seeking to have the windows cleaned inside -- that did not occur at all. I was seeking to have the upholstery shampooed -- that did not occur at all. I was seeking to have the carpet shampooed -- it appears that he attempted to shampoo the carpets, but nearly all the existing grime was still there, just swished around. He did clean the two floor mats pretty good. Very, very disappointed with the product of his work. I do not know if he deliberately performs poorly, or if he just does not give a d*** anymore and does not care if anyone returns or gives bad word-of-mouth about the work. I tend to think he just does not give a d***, but I also have the sense that I was duped, with all the talk beforehand about how knowledgeable he is and all the chemicals he has, etc. etc. etc. Then, the result of the job looks as though he spent a total of about 30 minutes working on the car. Bottom line: Very sloppy. Very incomplete. Very dissatisfied. Very ripped off (it is $80, after all). And, most importantly, very mislead. It seems, effectively, that he is contemptuous towards the notion of meeting customer expectations. There also seems to be a component of skinning the customer for the money, by talking everything up beforehand and then handing such shoddy work back to the customer. It reminds me of a carnival worker at those games where you only
your money, and that is it. Bye, bye, thanks for the cash, sucker.

"If you want your car looking worse that when it went in, than this is the place. The water softening system doesnt work. They are rude. When I talked to the manager" he told me to bring the car back up to have it redone and then they were going to charge me another 27.00 to redo it.

Car washes

Getting your car washed will prevent contaminants from eating away the paint job. How often you should wash your car depends on the climate and the amount of exposure to the elements.

is amazing! He takes him time and makes sure everything is perfect and then takes the time to explain how to care for the paint/protection. Our car looks amazing!

The best carpet cleaning service I have ever received.

and

were fantastic. I had never met them before, but quickly felt comfortable with them. I was so surprised at the care they took to do the job right! I would definitely recommend this company. Very professional and caring. I will be a return customer. Thank you.

They broke my car antenna and won't pay for it. I have been to the
Arlington Car Washes Provider Name Locked
Square location for 20 years and never had a problem. I wasn't told to remove it myself and it snapped off at the base. The manager wasn't very nice and said I should have removed it myself. I do this every time I go through a self service wash but expect a full service wash to unscrew it and put it in the car. It cost me 380,00 at the Toyota dealership because it snapped off in the base and they had to remove the fender to replace it. It is not covered by insurance.

I've been preparing to sell my 2003 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner. Never having had a garage, this truck has lived in harsh outdoor conditions for 12 years. The paint was badly oxidized and there were ancient spots from tar and oxidation that I've never been able to wash off.

I took it by #
Arlington Car Washes Provider Name Locked
to get an estimate on what it would cost to clean up the paint, if that was even possible.
Arlington Car Washes Provider Name Locked
assured me that he could clean it up very nicely, estimating that he could probably correct it to 80% of new condition. Well, when I picked up the truck, I was delighted to find that the paint was spotless and had been polished to better than new condition. That's right, the truck now shines far beyond what it did when I drove it off the lot at the Toyota dealership. I'm sure the truck will sell in no time now! Many thanks to

Oil
Arlington Car Washes Provider Name Locked
plug cross threaded causing $1200+ of damage. Multiple calls/voicemails to
Arlington Car Washes Provider Name Locked
's management and corporate offices were not returned. Local management refused to accept any blame or responsibility. History: We took my wife's truck here for an oil change. We noticed a leak the next day and immediately called them and brought the truck by for them to take a look at the "leak". After a quick look, they recommended we take the vehicle to a mechanic for a bad seal/hose. We brought the truck into the same trusted mechanic that has worked on this truck (and done the oil changes) for over two decades (it's a 1995). He informed us that the plug/threads were completely stripped/cross-threaded. Repairing the oil
Arlington Car Washes Provider Name Locked
on this truck involves lifting out the engine and is a significant effort. Our only option was to completely seal the plug and the mechanic will resort to siphoning/flushing the oil. We spoke at length with the mechanic about our options and even sought the advice of an attorney.
Basically, without detailed photos before/after, affidavits, etc, we're screwed and there's nothing we can do.

This is the second time in about 2 years that

. I have come to know
Arlington Car Washes Provider Name Locked
as an honest, trustworthy, experienced person who does his best to treat my
Arlington Car Washes Provider Name Locked
as if it were his own car. He has also originated some ideas which I have had him add to the car, to make it look cooler than it already was.
When I first bought the
Arlington Car Washes Provider Name Locked
(used), it had sat outside for two years, without any cleaning or protection at all. It was very dirty, and had about a dozen dings and creases where other motorists had opened their doors into it, carelessly.
Arlington Car Washes Provider Name Locked
removed all the dings and creases so that I could no longer see where they had been, even under close scrutiny. He wrapped the entire nose of the car in a crystal clear, very tough automotive protective film. You have to look very, very closely to even see where the edges of the wrap are. And he completely cleaned, clay-barred, and polished the car so well that it looked like it had never yet left the showroom floor. It was far, far more than I had expected it would be.
This
Arlington Car Washes Provider Name Locked
completely cleaned the car again. And at his suggestion, I had him use the same tough auto film (in a mat finish, instead of clear), to re-create the classic 1970's Challanger's broad, solid hood stripe. It looks like it was painted on at the factory.

. They were do the car same day and promised the car by 2:30came day, and called me by 12:30. The care looks and smells new.
This is my 2nd time I've gone there. They are friendly and professional. My husband also started taking his car there when he saw my results.
I have recommended to my friends. There is usually a coupon THE CONSUMER PACK (the long yellow biz envelope) that comes in the mail. It has coupon in there for $89.99 detailing and other car wash specials. It is much less than the competitors but you do have to leave it for a least half a day. YOU DO NEED TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT and leave the car for about 1/2 day or 5 or 6 hours. This is 1/3rd less than other places and with the coupon even better.

Went very well. We had a little trouble with scheduling because of the rain, the day we chose turned out to be a great day. It was the matter of the weather, neither his or my fault. He arrived on time and my car looks beautiful.
