best car wash i've been to in a while. cheap prices and everyone was really nice. my car came out a lot better than i thought it would. it came out beautiful i was very happy with my results. not to mention the service department is great too. i had my oil changed here and it was a great price and great service they weren't pushy either. i recommend going here if you want good work done on your car.

Worst car wash I've ever brought my car to. I would NOT recommend this place to anyone! In fact, if someone out there is considering using this car wash i would tell them to think long and hard about it. Your vehicle's value will depend on your decision. My review is by no means the only bad review this place has received. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! This car wash is not only more expensive than most car washes out there but it also barely cleans the car. In fact, after my car emerged from their car wash "supposedly clean"; dirt, bird droppings, and tar / water stains were still present on the vehicle after it was "washed". But that was not the worst of it. The worst part is finding the many scratches and scuffs that their car washing equipment left behind on my vehicle. My vehicle is brand new, purchased in October 2013 with no scratches on it before it went through their car washing equipment. I guess, i should have listened to my gutt and got off the line, when i saw the car wash attendants putting "black electrical tape" on the rear window washer blades of the other vehicles in front of me. In my entire life, i have never, ever, seen this "taping" of car parts done at any of the many car washes that i have taken my cars through over the years. After seeing the damage to my car from their car washing equipment, i am convinced that the owners of this place know that their equipment is faulty and damages cars and im certain it has broken off many rear window washer blades during its years of operation. What other reason would there be for black "electrical tape" to be used in this manner?? To provide extra strength to a vehicle's parts in an attempt to prevent it from breaking off during the cleaning process. Unfortunately for me, nothing short of getting off the car wash line that day, could have prevented the countless scratches and scuffs to my vehicle that it received that day after going through their damaging car washing equipment.

Last minute update:
The car wash receipt i received shows this business's address as:
932 Route 9 South in South Amboy NJ 08879.

However, on the Internet several well recognized and established companies show this car wash with the same address but with a different town shown.

In my opinion, a legitimate, well respected business would not try to "hide" itself like this by changing the town that it is located in for the purpose of "hiding" its poor reviews.

Only scam artists and unscrupulous companies have 2 webpages for their company; one website showing the "real" address while the other website shows a "different" address.

I never write reviews, but this required one. I had gone to this place before and was fine with it, in general. However, they did recommend several costly additions that honestly didn't need to be done. However, they did scare me once into a full engine flush. Waste of money, I didn't need it.
Today however, was my last time ever going there. I went for an oil change and the guy also recommended new spark plugs, coolant, and power steering fluid. I know for a fact I don't need it so I denied the request. I went for my free car wash afterwards and as I drove away heard scraping. Pulled over to see my splash pan had been ripped off by the car wash and was now dragging along the ground. I went back and the guy looks and says, "Oh it was like that when you got here for the oil change." I was in shock! I said no, it wasn't but even if it was, why didn't he mention that? He was so quick to recommend spark plugs,etc. He then used 3 wire ties to reattach it. Asked for a manager for a written statement that they damaged it, but he refused to admit they did anything and stood by "it was like that when it got here."

Since I have no photographic proof that it wasn't its their word vs. mine so I'm stuck. But I hope nobody else goes here. It's not professional and they should have offered to fix it permanently, not just wire ties.

I thought they did a great job for a fair price. I would certainly go back !!! I also love the soap gun that you can spray your own car.

Do not use this place. They stole all my change out of my car and when i brought it to someones attention the manager said he would review the tapes. Suprise he said there was no one on there that he could see that stole my change. Also said there was nothing he can do. also seems like when i pay for synthetic im not geting it cause synthentic oil should not be black in 2,000 miles. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!!!!!

RIP-OFF ALERT
paid for synthetic oil change. Caught "tech" red handed with already opened mobil one 5 quart jug. Asked for another sealed bottle. All bottles were already opened and OBVOUSLY REFILLED. I was paying for premium oil and getting ? Finally settled for factory sealed quaker state to avoid creating a scene. NEVER AGAIN. Hate it when a business flagrantly rips off its customers

Avoid this place. Went there to get a car wash and the before the car even goes through the machine while they are just hosing it down and washing the windows the guy snaps off my radio antenna. so i complain to the manager and he tells me the sign says we are not resposible for damages to the car expecially mirrors and antenna. i understand if the antenna gets broken off while going through the wash somehow theres nothing you can do but when your employee just keeps bending it til it snaps off you should be responsible. he wouldn't reimburse me for the antenna instead offered me a free car wash. you can bet you know where i told him to stick that car wash. avoid at all costs.

I commented one time before but for some reason its gone, so i will tell you again this place is a piece of sh-t, they damaged my hood then denyed that it wasn't them. I contacted BBB and these bunch of a holes called me one time and just blew me off.this is no type of decent company they are nothing but a bunch of inexperienced vultures that thrive on the little people. i would not take a matchbox car to this lousy dump. I anyone was smart go right down on 34 there is a car wash that treats you with respect and fairness,does a nice job for less money.Just beware of this garbage company treat yourself right go somewhere else but not here, all your doing is paying for his new facelift and his personal cars. they don't even deserve 1 star

They do a horrible job of washing the car. Now about the oil change.

They have goblins working in the basement that put on the oil plug wayyy too tight which then causes you to ruin the bolt(and possibly your oil pan). They use low quality filters and oil that punish your car. Not only that, they leave the car door open so your battery gets drained. stay away from this russian mafia owned facility. the grief you get will piss you off so much. stick to your dealer for oil changes, and go somewhere else for a car wash.

I brought my car to get an oil change and then a car wash like always. They have been usually good one time I had suspected them of taking something but was not sure so didnt do much about it.

This time though I had $40 in my arm rest and the scum bag mechanic stole it, when i told the owner he was more defensive and supporting the mechanic than trying to figure out the truth. This was not at all the reaction I expected from an owner of a business like this. Obviously he only cares about denial, and what you can do for him then.

Now I know it is partially my fault for leaving loose cash in my car when going to get an oil change. But at the same time that does not excuse the mechanic for being a thief or the owner for taking no steps but to write down the complaint in a binder.

They are scumbags, do not use, there are many better options where you don't have to worry about having things go missing in your car afterwords.

For one this car wash is way overpriced. They do a better job then a lot of the other car washes in the area. But I asked for the the premium service. The wash did great, but when it came to the hand drying they sucked. They were supposed. The armeral the inside and clean all windows. But what they did was use the same rag that they used to armeral the dash and inside to clean the windows. I did not know this untilled the first time it rained. My wife's windshield got so smuggled up. It was impossible to see though. Within seconds we were driving on the highway completely blind going 60 miles an hour. When I went back to tell the management they denied that they would have done it . And to make it up to me they gave me a free air freshener. Big deal. Dead wife. Free airfreshener.not a good trade if you ask me. Please stay away from this place. If you've read the other reviews you will see that this place is just not worth going to. They steal your stuff from what friends have told me.and a lot of people have told me that the cars were scratched up bad. And they do nothing to make it up to you. I do everything in my power to boycott this place.spread this to every person you know. Together we can put this place out of business. That's the only way I will feel better about them almost killing my wife and kids. They didn't even say that they were sorry. If you have any horror story's about this place please share them here.

I mistakenly went to this carwash and left my phone in the car prior to the wash. Upon recieving my vehicle back - barely cleaner than I had given it to them- I noticed that my phone was missing. I searched the entire car up and down and couldn't find the phone. After this, I approached the manager/owner who did absolutley nothing to help! Mind you, there were only 2 employees who dealt with my car- 1 outside and 1 inside. Also, not surprisingly, my phone was OFF when I tried calling it from the shop. It doesn't take a genius to realize that the person in charge of cleaning the inside of the car stole the phone. Now I am not sure why, but the manager seemed like he was in on it. Maybe- by the looks of the previous reviews- they make up for their lack of revenue by stealing phones and selling them on EBay? Who knows, but the bottom line is that this is not a car wash you want to go to!

PROS: Steal your phone, Don't Clean Your Car, Barely Speak English
CONS: None!

Posh Car Wash does an awesome job on your car. They never have a line and always work very hard to make sure your car looks great. The have tons of coupons so you can always get a great deal. Nice central location as well.

Posh Car Wash is NOT the greatest place to get your car washed...unless of course you are ok with spending a lot of money and receiving unsatisfactory service. My almost new car was filled with scratches and the price was ridiculous. I think I could have done a better job had I done it myself. Please, do not go to this place, especially if you have a new car.

#1 Overpriced
#2 Damage your car with scratches and abrasives
#3 Actually took off my Honda emblem in the pre-wash
#4 The hand dryers half-ass their work and don't finish drying your car, even with a tip and when you've paid for the additional services
#5 Going here is like urinating on your own car and then throwing rocks at it

PROS: It's closed at least 1 day a week
CONS: It's open often

I do not recomend going to this car wash if you care about the appearance of your car. I dont know what they use to wash the cars but it will most likely leave marks and forget about the so called "hand drying"! Your better off just driving away and air drying it.

Do not go here if you have a nice car. They claim all these brushless, non-abrasive materials but it left marks all over my car. The prices are also overpriced, well worth it to take the time and do it yourself.
