Got my GG 2001 Ody about two weeks ago. No complaints. We own a house and can wash our own car but in the Winter months, I go to a local car wash... I've not seen any vans go through these things. Can a minivan the size ot the Ody fit? and what about that antenna? Does it have to come off and HOW? does it just unscrew? Thanks! JEFF

Hi Jeff,

I don't think you'll have a problem with the Ody in an automated car wash. I've seen Caravans and Windstars go though without any problems but if you're concerned, I'd check with the owners for the largest dimensions their facility will accommodate before giving it a try.

The antenna does simply screw in but you'll probably need a tool to remove it. Also be careful not to overtighten when you put it back. I don't know how easy it would be to strip the threads. I also seem to remember reading somewhere in my owners manual that the antenna wouldn't be harmed in an automated car wash. I'll try to find that again.

Congrats on the new purchase!

Drive Safe,
Steve

I use the touchless car washes, and they're great! Fits w/plenty of room, and no need to unscrew the antenna. Oh, and the kids love it!

I put mine through a car wash in the winter, but I keep a wrench handy and remove the antenna, because the antenna once got pulled off the Mountaineer.

Yeah, I read that too.
Don't go to touch car wash, they will scratch the paint.
