I recently went to get my car washed at Puddle Car Wash in Boulder, the only decent touchless car wash in the area, and was told that they are currently not washing Teslas anymore. They said that Tesla's have gone into park while on the line and they are concerned about damage to the car, the line, and other vehicles. They always have an experienced employee sit in the car when it goes through the line, but nonetheless they claim it is happening too often. I explained that the seatbelt must be fastened as to prevent that from happening in the event that a person unweights the driver's seat while in Neutral. They claimed it is still happening with the seatbelt fastened, but my informal testing revealed that the car will not go into Park when the seatbelt is fastened and the car is in Neutral when the seat is unweighted. Frankly, I think they just don't want the hassle/liability of having one of their employees damage a car because they are too lazy to fasten the seat belt.
With winter around the corner I hope the car wash gets this sorted out. I've traded a few voicemails with the owner but so far we haven't connected. Looking for suggestions as to get this resolved.
Perhaps Tesla should develop a "Car Wash Mode" to allow the car to free roll in Neutral like all ICE vehicles.
I know, I know, first world problem, but I want my local car wash back!
