Every time I bring in the car to be washed, I end up choosing add-ons at random.

I finally decided to look up which ones to get, and which ones to pass on.

Consumer Reports says get the undercarriage wash at least once a season, “especially if you drive through mud or live in a part of the country where roads are salted in winter.”

Wheel cleaning is good, but spray-on wax is purely cosmetic.


And here is the theme for the 1976 cinematic classic, “Car Wash.”
