A 125-foot automatic wash tunnel is the bread and butter at each of Motor City Car Wash’s three locations. The system, which uses light-touch soft cloths and 60% recycled and filtered water, effectively cleans cars from roof to underbelly without damaging the paint. Drivers can choose one of four car-wash packages, such as the Basic—a wash, power dry, and hand finish—or the Works, complete with an exterior dressing and a Rain-X windshield treatment. After rolling through the tunnel, cars can pull up to a uniformed technician to be lavished with praise for their new and shiny look, or to be detailed with Meguiar's products. Motor City backs all of its services with a 48-hour re-wash policy.

The techs also enhance the cool factor from inside the car, accessorizing auto interiors with GPS systems, audio and visual components, and alarms.
