It is not a rare supercar or a Porsche/Ferrari/GT40 - it is a truck. If you obsess this much over it being washed, how will you do in the woods ?

Just climbing gear up to the rooftop tent you have in your avatar will take care of the marks on your truck. :)

Not at all. I will do the same. I have seen so many nice, new cars that are covered in swirl marks fresh off the lot
My in-laws came by with their new Camry and it had swirl marks on the hood courtesy of the dealer PDI. Eff that.

I have a truck that I meticulously take care of. I go both offroad and take it truck shows. It certainly has it's fair share of battlescars...but those are from me, that I'm ok with. Swirl marks and cheap wax are not acceptable battlescars in my opinion.

I’m not letting mine wash my first edition. I’m going to pick it up within an enclosed trailer. I’ve ordered HEPA filters for my garage.Ill get every speck of dust out of it. I’ll be using the water from the ice berg that the Titanic hit. Then after I’m done doing a five bucket wash I’ll seal it in a plastic bubble.
In all seriousness I wouldn’t let them wash. 90% of the people working for the dealership don’t care because they’re not paid enough to care. Or they’ll run it through an automatic wash which is 10 time is worse. There’s nothing wrong with wanting your brand new vehicle to look perfect.

Not necessarily "Bougie".
I mean, not everyone is taking this thing to Hell's Anus Trail.
I will, but would like my brand new ride to keep looking brand new until it doesn't.
If/when it gets damaged, I want to be the one responsible so I don't have to be a "Karen" to anyone but myself.
Asking them not to wash it is not crazy or extra. It's fine.


What is "bougie" is a post to ask if you are then disagree with/troll any differing opinions.
Or maybe that's just "extra" or "basic".
Kids nowadays. Sheesh!

I really don’t want them to wash it, I’ve seen washers at dealerships wipe the wheels and car with the same rag. Can/should I request that it not be washed?
[/QUOTE
They are the lowest paid people at the dealership. They don't take a personal interest in your new vehicle. What would you expect?

I guess it depends on if it will be a mall crawler or if it actually goes off-road. I’m wondering how soon my first pin stripes will be from some of the local trails.

But I get it and don’t want swirl marks from the dealership either!

You get it. I take care of everything I pay for, if anyone is going to scratch it, it should be me. I just didn’t want to look crazy asking a Ford dealer not to wash my truck lol.

I’m going to ask them not to wash mine, no dealership decals/license plate frames, and not to install the front license plate frame until I pick it up and am satisfied where it’ll be mounted.
