The Car Wash is a business featured in many Grand Theft Auto games, although it is only functional in Grand Theft Auto IVEpisodes From Liberty City, and Grand Theft Auto V that lets the player take any passenger car, light truck or SUV to this facility to remove dirt, grime, and the occasional blood.

Description Edit

Other GTA games Edit

Car washes are found all over the map in previous Grand Theft Auto games, although the player cannot interact with them in any way as they are considered static objects. The player may still drive through the car wash and they also are often attached to a gas station. When accumulated dirt was introduced on vehicles in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, car washes were believed to be featured, but the feature was never included in the final version of the game, though during the car chase sequence of Reuniting the Families, a car wash sprays soap onto the Greenwood driven by Carl, Sweet, Ryder, and Big Smoke as the chase leads through it, much to the chagrin of Carl.

Grand Theft Auto IV Edit

Available immediately after the beginning of the games, car washes are interactive in Grand Theft Auto IV and its episodes. In most cars and while not wanted by the police, the player can pull up to a marker behind the car wash to trigger a cutscene. In the scene, the player pushes a button on the control panel, opening the entry gate. The player then drives in and stops, allowing several brush strokes and water sprayers to clean up the car. Once the car is shiny, still in the cutscene, the exit gate opens and the player drives out in a view that shows off the new cleanliness of the car. The cutscene ends and the gamer, assuming the player's control, may now drive the car.

Taxis, except Roman's Taxi, get a discount washing at $3 instead of the usual $5, except the car wash in Tudor. Convertibles are washed by hand. Large trucks and vans such as the Boxville, emergency vehicles, limos, helicopters, motorcycles and boats are restricted from the car wash. Police and NOOSE cars are also unwashable.

Occasionally, if the player skips the wash sequence cutscene, the vehicle's passenger side door will open, likely a game bug.
