Car Wash Refuses To Clean Jeep Cherokee



A while back, we told you about a defect in certain Jeep Cherokees that causes sudden acceleration. The problem made headlines in Philadelphia about six months ago when a Jeep accelerated into traffic, narrowly avoiding cars and people. The International Car Wash Association has advised its members to handles such vehicles with caution as Jeep continues to maintain that there is not a problem with the Cherokees.

But the vehicle is making waves again, this time because a man in Mechanicsville, Virginia said a car wash refused to service his vehicle because they were worried the sudden acceleration might be a problem. Robert Butler said he hadn’t heard of that problem with the Cherokee until Carpool refused to wash his vehicle this month according to WTVR.

The owner of the car wash said they made it their policy not to deal with Jeep Cherokees to avoid damage to the vehicles and damage to their own property.

“The biggest thing with Jeep is the history,” said Chief Operating Officer Tyree Brown. “The history and the manufacturer hasn’t acknowledged it.”
