Question Looking for a good carwash in Vaughan for my X6M

Hello,

Long time reader, first time poster. I have noticed that a lot of people on here are from the GTA and thought I would see if anyone can recommend a good carwash place in Vaughan. I hate washing my car but since it's in a new housing area it gets dusty all the time. I am looking for a place that will wash the exterior + rims and dry. I don't need full detailing just a good place I can visit a few times a month to keep my ride looking fresh.

Any suggestions?

There is a place on hwy 7 and Pine Valley. Right behind petro Canada. $10-$20 the car goes the the brushes and what not. Then they dry it by hand and wipe the interior.

If you do decide to go this route expect your paint job to go to hell. Swirl marks galore.
Safest touchless wash at esso on Weston and Rutherford. All other esso stations in Vaughan have old wash system that is crap.

Sunoco is also touch free and does a decent job.

But since alot of them have been converting to Petro Canada locations now, you probably will have to know which one was which first.

Dado 540,

A non touchless drivethru car wash is no good because my rear wheels are 315 wide so I will not fit on the track (the widest they fits is 285 from what I heard) and the second part is the swirl marks. But the touchless does not do a good enough job. I go to the Esso all the time, it does a decent job but not great.

540guy,

I will try to find a touchless Sunoco one and try that out.

the sunoco on highway 7 between yonge and bathurst has a carwash without tracks.

I always did wonder whats the largest size that fit on carwash tracks. its a torturing 3 minutes with the squealing noise from rubbing.

Or you could do by hand at one of those coin op places. just bring some good towels with you for the wipe down after. costs less than a car wash place and you know you will pamper the paint and all. not in vaughan - MajorMac and Bayview. A bit out of the way but it's I think $5 for 7mins..or something like that. plenty of time do wash and rinse.

Hi,

A great place I recommend is the Shell touch-less wash at 27 and 7 because it has an area that you can dry off your truck since touch-less usually don't get everything off.

Or

One other thing I would suggest is getting your X6M a full exterior wax or sealant to protect the paint from swirls from road dust, or even when your drying off your X6M or if you decide to go to soft cloth washes.

PM me if you need more info for onsite services provided
