Automatic car washes that actually make contact with the vehicle are Satan's way....... I had a rear wiper arm ripped from my WK a while ago in a DeltaSonic wash (Rochester, NY). After the incident I got out and the wash kid came toward me holding the broken wiper arm and asked, "is this yours?"
I responded, "no it is yours now." At that point, a manager came out with the clipboard and incident/claim report, which I completed. They reimbursed me the cost of the new wiper arm/blade, and gave me a coupon for a free wash (which I never used).
