Well here it is, my review on my 3rd visit. Once again I was treated with respect and informed about all the upcoming specials. I has my usual Platinum wash and it was flawless!! I also had a spot on my passenger side rear seat. I had transported a stepladder and some rusty water came out of one of the side tubes and Jarrod worked some magic on it and whammo, it's gone and at no extra charge to me!! The new manager had some cool movie kit cars up there also, and if you ever want to rent a limo, he has a super stretch that is awesome!! See you soon fellas and thanks again!!

Bad service and smart mouthed manager, owner does not care – Some of the other reviews here and on other sites have mirrored the same experience I had at this sorry excuse for a business. I had an issue with the car was I received and the "manager" (who is nothing more than the head of the thuggish looking gang of towel boys they have) argued with me and blamed the problem on me. I contacted the owner but got no reply. It is not surprising to see that Yankee Auto Bath has an F rating with the Better Business Bureau. There are plenty of places to get your car washed in this area, if enough people read these reviews and go elsewhere maybe this horrible business will have to shut down.
Very Good – I went to Yankee Auto Bath for the first time today. I have to admit at first it was different. They use an automated sales system very much like an ATM. I was amazed how easy it was to navigate. It was nice not having any pressure to buy and not having to deal with a salesman. Another feature is the only one that drives my vehicle is me! I hate turning over my vehicle to other people. The guys on the front lot do excellant work and the manager Andy is a very nice man. I have a detail scheduled for next week.
They damaged our car; took no responsibility – This car wash had poor guidance and very automated that allowed for the vehicle to get off track and caused significant damage. Manager avoided contact with us despite the car getting stuck in the wash. When confronted he placed all the blame on us. He denied knowledge of the event and then right away got defensive and wanted to show us the video that he already watched. He stated that this had never happened before but later told us that there was already damage to the building from someone else doing the something similar. He demonstrated absolutely no integrity or accountability. Every other large car wash service I've been to has had more personal guidance to prevent events such as this. The workers there were also a bit unsettling in appearance (no uniforms, lots of tatoos and piercings). This was suppose to be part of an anniversary present that my father-in-law was giving to his wife but this place ended up destroying much of the day.
You've been warned...try a more professional place like Mike's Car Wash even if it's further away. It's cheaper, better quality, and better experience overall.
Trashy Trashy Horrible – It was one of the worst experiences ! I have never felt so disrespected or treated like I was just another " nieve girl " .
When I showed up to get my car detailed an employee walked up to me and said " this might be crossing the line, but girl, you look good " . Uh, that is not okay. I felt so afraid to go back and get my car that I had to have a friend come back with me.
I called 5 times, and boyfriend called 3 and NOBODY picked up the phone once. When they did pick up the phone the man said " whats up". Again, that is not okay.
Next, I get in my car after I looked over the unfinished job to find out, being the "nieve girl" I am that my car was taken to Monroe, OH. I wrote the milage down before I left in case this were to happen, and then on the Navigation system it said " last destination, *** Main St. , Monroe, OH. I was so shocked !
Poor Poor service and I would be ashamed to even be associated with a poorly ran business that way.
Under-impressed – I got the full detail package and was under-impressed with the results. The only thing they did a good job on was the exterior paint. When my car was finished I ran my finger on the wheel and it came off blackened. Apparently a lot of their tire dressing settled on the wheel and they never cleaned it off. The interior carpets were cleaner, but not as clean as I'd expect for the cost. I left a large [3" long] black grease mark on my glovebox door. It was still there when they finished the job. It took me 4 seconds with a wet paper towel to remove. Similar smudge marks and stains remained throughout the vehicle.
I'm still searching for someone on the area that cares about the quality of their detail work. This place isn't it.
Terrible Ownership – This place is a joke. Made an appointment to get car detailed. Arrive that morning, the management doesn't even show up to open the place. The employees tell me, "We don't know what in the world is going on." I decide to leave, go to Oakwood Auto and Detailing who get me in immediately and charge me $25 LESS. Don't support a business who doesn't respect it's employees, let alone its customers.
Best Car Wash Ever! – Yankee Auto Bath is simply the best car wash period. They have a wide varity of service to cover any need your vehicle has. The management is top notch and all the employees are very freindly.
