Automatic car wash

Automatic car wash  - Washing the car - Vehicle care - Maintenance and specifications - Volvo XC60 Owners Manual - Volvo XC60

Х We do NOT recommend washing your car in an automatic wash during the first few months (because the paint will not have hardened sufficiently).

Х An automatic wash is a simple and quick way to clean your car, but it is worth remembering that it may not be as thorough as when you yourself go over the car with sponge and water. Keeping the underbody clean is most important, especially in the winter. Some automatic washers do not have facilities for washing the underbody.

CAUTION Х Before driving into an automatic car wash, turn off the optional rain sensor to avoid damaging the windshield wipers.
Х Make sure that side view mirrors, auxiliary lamps, etc, are secure, and that any antenna(s) are retracted or removed.
Otherwise there is risk of the machine dislodging them.
Х Chromed wheels: Clean chromeplated wheels using the same detergents used for the body of the vehicle.
Aggressive wheel-cleaning agents can permanently stain chrome-plated wheels.

WARNING
Х When the vehicle is driven immediately after being washed, apply the brakes, including the parking brake, several times in order to remove any moisture from the brake linings.
Х Engine cleaning agents should not be used when the engine is warm. This constitutes a fire risk.
