This is a note from a Car Wash.
Attention Tesla Owners
The Tesla’s Owner’s Manual says : “Caution: If washing in an automatic car wash, use Touchless car washes only. These car washe have no parts (brushes, etc). they touch the surfaces of Tesla’s. Using any other type of car wash could cause damage that is not covered by the warranty.” it also cautions to not use high pressure power washers on the cameras or parking sensors.
If The Manufacturer states “NOT TO USE CAR WASH”
We as a car wash operator cannot be held responsible for any damage caused! When the manufacture states it is not responsible! How can we be held liable when you are washing that manufacture says not to do.
Explains all the paint defects and problems Tesla Model 3 owners are having when they get their cars back from the service center.
