I just got an '06 and I live in Toronto, Canada and it's come time for the commander's first wash, under my ownership. With all the leakage issues, sun roof, sky lights etc. Other than by hand, what's the best way to wash our commanders. Touchless spray, soft cloth?

Thanks in advance.

Remember, it's an 06, one of the leaky bastards.

i own a detail shop so i wash my commander twice a week usually wax it every 3 months and clay bar once a year i would hand wash but if you cant take it through a wash but not one that usses those brushes just touchless spray
so many cars come into my shop that have swirl marks from those supposedly softcloth car washes.
just my 2 cents

I would stay away from those drive through washes , even if it is touchless because when the high pressure sprays over the moonroof it will push it slightly open and fill your drain tubes and since you are in canada and im sure its cold the drain tubes can freeze and crack open leaving you with some leaks . I only use the drive through wash in warm weather .

I just took my wife's '06 XK Limited through a full brush car wash, with all the bells and whistles, and maybe we're lucky but didn't have any leaks at all. We have the sunroof, 2 moonroofs, etc. I don't like the spray-only and cloth washes because they never seem to get my cars totally clean.

I think i'm most worried about over pressurized water jets. I'd rather 3 step wax my car each year or 2 than have pressure washers spray seals and seams from every which angle, pushing water in and sometimes grease, out. I know it's rough on the paint but I think for longevity I'm gonna have to go with the old school spinny brush ride.
