Any proud car owner knows that exiting a wash with your vehicle looking like new is something to be proud of?and an essential part of upkeep, too. Rolling through Quiet Waters Exxon's automated wash, cars are spiffied up bumper to bumper and top to bottom, including the undercarriage. After the pre-soak, the exterior receives both high-pressure and soft washes before being coated with triple-colored foam wax. Wheels are scrubbed, and the vehicle gets a DuraShield protectant to preserve its paint job. Those measures are followed by a spot-free rinse and drying blasts of warm air that are more effective than assigning your kids to handheld blow-dryer duty.
