Unlike cats and germaphobes, automobiles need to be reminded to wash themselves. Drop a blatant hint to your lazy ride with today's Groupon: for $20, you get three months of the White Unlimited car-wash plan at Cobblestone Auto Spa, valid at seven locations in Phoenix, Chandler, Mesa, Scottsdale, and Surprise (a $59.97 value).
Cobblestone Auto Spa offers thorough yet speedy wash services in as little as 15 minutes (or one standard metric Warhol). The White Unlimited package lets drivers routinely revive road-weary wagons with unlimited "Deluxe" Express washes that dismiss dirt from auto exteriors. A soft-cloth wash rids besmirched buggies of salt and grime before techs towel-dry and burnish car hides with a triple-foam polish and a clear-coat protectant that guards exteriors from premature fading. Afterward, tire shine restores allure to befouled wheels, leaving hubcaps shinier than ear-emancipated quarters.
Towel-dry not available at Surprise and Mesa locations.
Cobblestone Auto Spa
Fast washes, friendly service, and eco-friendly initiatives converge at Cobblestone Auto Spa. Instead of letting sudsy water seep back into the environment, Cobblestone Auto Spa drains it into a sewage system that strips it of any toxins before it's re-released. Precise computer controllers allow the spa's mechanical washing system to cleanse rides with less water and electricity, and Cobblestone's precise staffers man onsite detailing, express-lube, and windshield-repair centers. Multiple locations further convenience customers when paired with unlimited wash plans, which bedeck windshields with a radio-frequency identification sticker that automatically activates the car wash and any chosen upgrades such as wax protection or an underbelly tickle.
Two experts settle the debate.
