Driving a shiny car is a great way to experience luxurious transportation without the hassle of chartering a yacht or riding a peacock to work. Transform regular vehicles into ritzy rides with today's Groupon: for $29, you get three The Works washes (a $64.17 value) at Kwik Car Wash's Southland location in Parma Heights.
Since 1953, cars have emerged from Kwik Car Wash's tunnel and driven away adorned in shiny new coats. Kwik's premier service, the 5–10-minute The Works wash, kicks off with an interior cleanup and an outside wash, which combs the car frame in order to do away with tar spots and grease smudges. A triple clear-coat treatment glazes the painted surface, revealing the original showroom colors, and Teflon-fortified Simoniz double-bond sealant protects the finish for up to 30 days. Cars dip into a quick chassis bath before leaving, and are welcome back any day of the week to redeem the rest of their washes, to take advantage of the three free exterior washes included, or to just sit around reminiscing about their first time in the tunnel.
Jerry Kuhn's Kwik Car Wash
The Kuhns' long line of entrepreneurship began in 1920 with a Sinclair Gas Station. Today, under it's third generation of family ownership, Jerry Kuhn's Kwik Car Wash is a full-service car wash that's been shining up Cleveland-area autos for the last 60 years. The Kuhns are still at the helm with a skilled team providing services such as exterior washes, interior vacuuming, and tire dressings. The wash techs clean cars quickly with basic washes or can spend up to one hour executing more thorough detailing. During those more thorough details, they glaze exteriors with Simoniz Hot Wax arch to bring out the paint job's original showroom color. Then, they make the interior sparkle by shampooing the car's carpets and dreadlocks and wiping down the dash and console.
