El Segundo 5-Minute Express Carwash
125 N Sepulveda Blvd, El Segundo, CA 90245
5 Minute Carwash usually lives up to it's name. A high-volume machine carwash that does an excellent job on all our cars from the small sports car to the large SUV. Inexpensive, especially for the base-level wash, which I think is still $6. Lots of vacuums outside for interiors.
Drivers beware if you use this car wash! I was just there, when the cloth rollers in the wash, hit my passenger side mirror, knocking it completely off. When I complained to the manager, he told me that they would not take any responsibility, and that I couldn't prove that it was their machines that broke the mirror off. (I was in the car, and heard the 'pop' as the roller hit the mirror) The workers there also implied that this happens quite frequently, which is why the owner will not pay any damages.
Needless to say, the 'convenience' of this car wash is not worth the headache of having to repair my car of all of the damages.
If you insists on using this car wash - BEWARE!!! This could happen to you!
I love SoCal car washes, but I don't always have time to spend a half hour while a guy polishes my bumper. ES 5 Minute Express gets the job done in 5 minutes or less and I can go to a meeting with a shiny car. It's DIY for the vacuum, and it's free, but when I don't care about the inside, only the outside, this is the place.
