The best car wash companies don’t use any automakers, a group that includes the major automakers, according to a new report.
Automakers typically charge about $100 for the job, with about two cents of the cost going to the customer, according a survey by the National Automobile Dealers Association.
That means that for the average customer, a $100 car wash might cost less than $10.
The industry, however, does not disclose the average cost of car wash services, and some companies do not offer a dollar-for-dollar comparison.
The NADA survey of more than 7,000 auto dealerships found that the top-rated companies charged about $1.30 per pound of body wash and $1 per pound for hand wash.
For example, the most expensive car wash in the NADA’s survey cost $1,079.95 for the most-expensive hand wash, and $2,086.65 for the least-expensive.
The most expensive hand wash in a dealer’s inventory was $1-per-lb.
For a customer, that might mean a $50 charge for a $2-per-$10 car wash.
Other companies charged less for the same job, but the survey said that the price per pound was lower than the average.
The survey also found that car wash sales dropped about 17 percent in 2014, to $7.3 billion, while the average price for a used car dropped more than 22 percent to $1 million.
A $100-per -pound car wash costs less than the same amount of money to get a used one, but it does have to be more expensive.
In 2014, the average car wash cost $8,955.55 to run.
The price for used cars, meanwhile, dropped 19 percent to an average of $15,000.
The car wash industry is struggling to find the revenue it needs to make ends meet.
It has struggled to find enough new and loyal customers to keep it afloat, and it has lost billions of dollars as more people get rid of cars, said Chris Anderson, president of the trade group American Auto Dealers.
A car wash that is not profitable for the manufacturer, or for its dealers, or even for its franchisees, is not going to be profitable for anyone.
It is just going to get destroyed.
The companies that did the best with car wash prices include those that were based on the average number of customers that were using the services at any one time.
That was the case for all but two of the companies surveyed, which included the auto parts makers.
One company, New Car Dealers, which owns the Nissan dealership at the center of the NAA survey, charges about $4 per pound per wash.
The company reported that it is losing about $50 million annually.
Other car wash brands, such as Blue Water and Kmart, charge significantly less than that.
New Car Deals and Blue Water, which are owned by the same company, do not provide a dollar figure for their customer base.
The prices charged by the NDA’s survey reflect a market that is shrinking, and there is a chance that it could continue to shrink, said Anderson.
Consumers have also been choosing less expensive brands of auto wash.
A 2014 study by the Consumer Reports Institute, a trade group for consumer advocacy groups, found that a recent shift in consumer tastes may have played a role in the decline of auto manufacturers.
Consumers are looking for cleaner, healthier options and less-expensive brands that offer fewer chemicals and additives.
But the industry is not doing enough to attract new customers, said James Wurzer, senior director of automotive at the Consumer Federation of America.
“There’s no reason to believe that this market is going to recover,” he said.
