If I could give them negative stars I would. The service is quick and superficial. I asked them to vacuum the trunk and they did so, but the guy didn't get to finish because the supervisor jumped in my car and drove my car out on the sidewalk. What a rude punk! I guess you get what you pay for!!! Never again!!! There are other good car washes in the area where people are polite. Avoid if possible.

I took my car there for a $15 car wash last week and used my Debit Card...When I checked my bank statement, I found out there was another transaction made from the same place for $25.15...I went for a straight car wash and did not make any purchases or have them do anything else to my car...I called my bank to do some investigations and they told me that the transaction was for a gas purchase from this place made 2 hours from when I got my car wash - I never know they sell gas there!...WTF!!! I will never go back there again!!!

The service is superior. Since the owners is there and taking care of the bussiness they have changed things for the best - the car wash has always been good but now it is turned to excellent and they have now started to make improvements. One time I waited a little but going in you have to know that a hand car wash takes a little more time and I would much rather wait a few minutes. If you have not tried it please do so now - you will be pleasantly surprised.. What I believe to be an extra touch they remember your name after a couple of times - so when you go in you are greeted by Mrs or by your first name. Give them a Try.

I recently brought my 1993 Mercedes 600S in for detailing. The exterior and interior of the car looked great but what is a pristine auto if you can't drive it? During the detailing process, Snappy ""detailed"" the engine. Within that process they managed to short circuit some of the electrical components of the engine- specifically the ignition module and a coil. Eventho my car is a 1993, it is in impeccable mechanical ( as well as body) shape. It's a V12 with around 73,000 miles on it. Needless to say, my problems existed before I brought my car to ""Snappy"". At least that is the opinion of Snappy management. Never mind my car died out on the Drive the very next morning after putting on two miles since the detail adventure. Because we are talking thousands of dollars, I will have to sue-which I plan to do. I did some research and most other car wash businesses DO NOT DETAIL THE ENGINE. Smart on their part, dumb on SNAPPY.
Too bad from what was once a reliable and trustworthy place.
Just truly awful. After a couple of bad experiences, I've given up on this place. Which is sad, because they used to be great. And they're very close to where I live. But the quality has gone way way down. The last time was just a joke -- huge areas of the car not even touched. I stood there thinking, "You've got to be kidding." I pointed out how bad it looked, and they tried to wipe the dirt off with a damp towel, effectively rubbing the dirt into the paint. I went to look for a manager in the office (he was "gone for the day" -- it was 2:45 pm on a Saturday) and when I walked back 1-2 minutes later, they had pulled my car outside. Yikes. Never again. $19 down the drain. Avoid this place at all cost.

Best place to wash your car!
My bf had been going to Snappys for years and even though we've moved to a different location, we still travel to Snappys for our car washes. They're so fast, professional, thorough, and courteous! It's crazy how you bring your car in, they put about 6 guys on your car to wash it from inside and out and when it's done, it's really like new. Great rates and easy to find because there's always cars waiting to get washed...very popular place! There's always a line but the wait is never long. Highly Recommended. =)
