Have owned our Clarity since August with no major problems. We usually use a stationary car wash where the car stays in Park and the brushes move around the vehicle, but occasionally I'd like to use a 'track' car wash where the car is moved through the wash cycle on a track. I noticed in the Owners Manual it outlines a special, multi-step process if you want to use a 'track' car wash, but I'm wondering if this is really necessary? Not sure why you couldn't just put it into Neutral like any other car, but am wondering about other's experiences.

On the lower left panel near your left knee are four buttons. The bottom middle button will turn off the "CMBS" or (Collision Mitigation Braking System). When you place the car in neutral for the car wash to pull it through, press the CMBS button and hold it until it beeps. That will keep the car from trying to brake at all the brushes that come toward the car when it's going through the wash tunnel. If you don't do that, you 'could' have a problem. I always ride through in the wash I use. Leave the ignition on and place the tranny in neutral until you've gone completely through. I use it at least once a week, my car wash has unlimited use for a monthly fee.
