Car Washes vs Hand Washing

car washes vs hand washing

Though it is time consuming, sometimes it is a good idea to hand wash your car.

Dads in movies from the 80s make it seem like a personal insult if you don’t wash shine your own car to a perfect, meticulous finish, but is there really that much of a difference? When it comes to automatic car washes vs hand washing, which one is better depends entirely on you.

For one, not everyone can or wants to wash and wax their car at home. It’s time-consuming, and it’s not fun to do if you don’t have a garage and you want to clean muddy slush off your car in the middle of winter.

Another thing that isn’t great about hand washing: runoff. When you clean your car at home, you send chemicals into grass and sewers. But automatic car washes aren’t perfect either.

The only real way to remove contaminants from your car’s surface is through hand washing, using clays and polish to restore the car’s shine. You don’t get the same experience with an automatic wash, which is a great reason to at least take care of your car at home every once and a while, even if most of the time you hit the car wash instead.

Mitsubishi Mirage is the Most Affordable Car on the Road

Most Affordable Car

The 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage has proved to save you money throughout the life of the vehicle.

According to a report just released by Cars.com, the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage is “the most affordable car shoppers can buy,” based on criteria of initial cost, minimum feature requirements, and fuel costs.

Marketed for its incredible fuel economy, the 2015 Mirage is one of the most fuel-efficient cars on the road, even getting equivalent or superior gas mileage to some hybrids. Thanks to its low MSRP, which is $1,300 less than the second place car, and an estimate of $500 more in gas savings over 7 years than the second place car, the Mirage pulls ahead of the affordability pack by miles. The Mirage also comes with Mitsubishi’s amazing warranty program, setting it apart from other manufacturers’ vehicles.

Cars.com staff said that when considering the most affordable car they looked not only at lowest costs but at basic amenities like power locks and windows and an automatic transmission. The Mirage includes these at lower prices than many other cars whose base models have roll-down windows and a manual transmission.
