I've used this place twice now. Both times, there was no soap in the machines. They expect you to use a foam brush to clean your car? Maybe the wheels, but not the paint. The change machines did not work. The pressure washer does well enough to rinse your car and to get any light dirt or mud off, but without a soap spray option that worked, it was hard to get my car clean.

The wash is pretty cheap. 8 quarters for 4 minutes.

I wouldn't recommend using them if you have a nice car and want to do a good job.

This place would be so much better if they had a soap option for the pressure sprayer, and they had a "spotless" water option to rinse so you don't have to worry about water spots if you let your car air dry.

I've seen places that actually take credit cards and have all the options I've mentioned above. It's time for San Jose or Campbell to get a higher class of self wash car washes.

The only downside is you have to make sure you have enough coins to get your car washed and vacuumed, apart from that, it's great. You get to a clean car for very little money, and although you wash the car yourself, it's far easier to bring your car here than wash it at home. Highly recommended.

I like self service coin-op car washes. They are becoming a rarity these days now that there are so many car wash places that will hand wash your car while you wait.

After some practice you can wash your car for as little as $4. And you get some exercise too since it is self service. This car wash facility has giant brushes and water sprayers. All you need to do is bring your quarters, and a towel to dry your car, if you like towelling off your car. There are also powerful vacuums that you can use (also takes quarters) to clean out your car. Maybe you'll find more quarters while you clean out your car. It's a win-win situation.

PROS: Inexpensive, usually not busy, well-kept. It's nice to wash your own car once in a while.
CONS:
