– Q – Should I take my car through a car wash, or will it scratch the paint? RP: If you're going to go through a car wash, you should always use touchless. I understand that sometimes touchless washes don't clean off all the dirt, but the last thing you want is a car wash that touches your paint. Even though they use modern materials, they still scratch. I know someone who leased a vehicle, went to a car wash every week, and when they traded the vehicle in, they got a $10,000 bill for paint damage.

RP: Most people don't get the money back they pay into extended warranties. The average return is 67 percent. Extended warranties are good for people who can't afford sudden repairs. You can bury the cost in your financing. But if you can afford repairs, don't buy the warranty.
