Best of Boston

2006 Best Car Wash

Allston Car Wash

Roll into this ‘cah spa’ and let a team painstakingly shampoo, buff, and wax your begrimed automobile back into the gleaming ride it once was. Nimble, speedy attendants can complete most jobs—from conditioning your leather to glazing your acrylic—in less than an hour. For a quick fix, the five-minute, $8.95 drive-through starts with a wash and ends with a hand-dry toweling. You won’t find a deal like that at the day spa.
