Robots are good for many things, including freaking out dogs and launching war on mankind, but they often lack the gentleness of a human touch. Rather than having bitter robots detail your car at a gas station, this deal gets your ride the luxurious hand care it deserves: for $45, you get an ultimate splash wash car at River City Splash in Prospect (up to a $95 value). Pricing varies from $80–$95 depending on vehicle size; you may use your Groupon for any size car, SUV, van, or truck except XL pickups, duallys, and trailers, which will cost extra.
As Kentuckiana’s only hand-car-wash facility, River City Splash is the only way to gently and meticulously spiff up four-wheeled living rooms without hiring a crew of mimes who never actually touch the car while working. Each ultimate splash wash includes a hand wash and dry, wheel cleaning, interior blow-out and vacuuming, window cleaning, dash and center-console wipe-down, seat cleaning and dressing, door-panel wash, tire dressing, and exterior hand wax. Sparing delicate car exteriors from clumsy machinery and assembly-line service, River City employs a crew of live people who deftly revive your car’s lustrous sheens with steady-handed precision. River City’s crew always uses high-quality cleaning products, never recycled banana-peel wipes.
With a full wash, cars will roll off the River City Splash lot clean and dapper, ready to grab a drink at the gas station and mingle in parking lots like Nick Nolte. Pick up a few Groupons and stuff inboxes with the gift of a remastered car. Sneakily take a spouse's vehicle for a spring cleaning and then apologize profusely to the police after it's reported stolen; stop on your way home at the giant-bow outlet store, place one atop the roof, and claim it's a brand-new car that somehow has the same mileage and embarrassing taste in CDs.
