Why Can't I???

Chalk this question up to being stubbornly curious :roll:

O.K., I know what the manual says about the removing the skirts before sending the Insight through the automated car wash, but my question is why? I know, I may cause damage, but how?

It seems to me, the brushes that clean the wheels would just pass over the skirts....What am I missing???

I know most of you will suggest hand washing instead, but for reasons I'd rather not get into :roll:, I'd like to send the car through the car wash with minimal effort...O.K. if you must know, I'm a lazy a$$... :oops:

Thanks for the info!

I just got my Insight. I had heard that you can't send the Insight through a "Track" guided car wash. I have a monthly fee I pay of $30 for unlimited washes. They don't use the spinning nylon brushes. They have the hanging cloth type of machine. I was more worried about the rear wheels being closer together than the fronts and maybe doing alingment damage. Has anyone seen such damage?
