i hate when the big buys feel like they can just screw me over and get away with it. i took my truck into one of those 24 hour chain car washes because i needed my undercarriage cleaned to try and find an oil leak. there is a light just for that stage of the car wash, it was on for less than 5 seconds and was off by the time i was done pulling in. also the car wash has no means of directly cleaning the undercarriage just 2 arms that wrap around the vehicle and the lowest sprayer on them was higher than the bottom of my truck. i dont think its fair that they claim the undercarrige is part of the wash when it simply is not there system has absolutly no way of effectively cleaning the undercarrige so as far as i understand its false advertising at a minimum and commiting fraud too probably.
Did you complain to the management of the car wash? That would be your best bet. Explain your concerns, and you may get another car wash for free or your money back.

Fraud is typically pretty difficult to demonstrate. If the company is specifically advertising that it will clean the undercarriage when it knows its machines won't do that, you could potentially make a claim for fraud.
However, that would be an enormous waste of your resources to pursue that, in my opinion. I agree with the previous answer that it would be your best bet to complain to management. Most businesses want to keep their clientele happy, so if you didn't receive what you were supposed to receive, many will give you your money back.
I doubt if you have a claim. Car washes do not guaranty perfect washing of all areas of the car, including undercarriages. Next time, go to a better car-wash that handles undercarriage cleaning in a more professional manner. I have found that the cheap "chain" car washes do a poor job, and that if I need specialized attention to a specific feature of my car, I need to use one of the more expensive car washes.
