Taboo - has anyone taken their vehicle through a carwash w/ the roof antenna on?
I say "taboo" only because I normally hand wash all of my vehicles, however, w/ the low temps currently hovering over NJ for the last 2 months, it makes it nearly impossible to hand wash a car when it's below 30*... I have done it in the past, only to have the water freeze on the vehicle before I could dry it (and the entire car looks like a clear candy coated lolipop).
I need to take it through a car wash to get all of the road salt/dirt off of it from the last snowstorm... and also need the chassis/floorpans cleaned (most automated washes shoot the underside of the vehicle for cleaning purposes). I have never had a vehicle w/ a rooftop antenna, so I was wondering if anyone else has taken their Fusion/Milan/MKZ through such an automated car wash w/ the antenna still attached? Was there or is there any issues in doing so?
