Not necessarily ..... the one I go to has a "feather touch option" and while I think it's a bit harsher than that, I have not seen any swirl marks....... The hand held wash is fine for light washes in the summer but i find I need the "blast" and "touch" of the automatic to get the vehicles clear of road salt residues and crud on the undercarriage.Doesn't everybody hand wash their truck? Auto car wash = swirl marks.

Mine was build 12/23/14, a day before Xmas. Hopefully they were not in a hurry to leave.zerdian1 said:I use a fantastic local HEAVENLY HANDS Detailer to clean and wax my cars. But it was suggested to wait the first 3 months after being built before waxing. You can wash with hose or by hand anytime. My car was build on Dec 17th and on St Patricks day it will be 3 months.
Wow! Those boards are one of the things that sold me on the Escalade.....they make getting in and out so easy! ( of course our age ..68 might have something to to with it ) The MB GL we had was a pain to get in and out of.....the running boards were there, but were just "eye candy!"Yeas, Im having the same issue with wanting the boards extended while washing. I was told if you stand on them while someone else turns the engine off they will stay out- but haven't tried that yet.
Also, I don't like the clunking as they go in and out and find them in the way as I get in or out so usually mine are disabled - then every time I start the truck I get a chime and warning that they are disabled. Yeah - I know - I disabled them! Lol. I need to find a way to disable the disabled warning.
