It’s not bad but we have to care about many things while washing car with power pressure washer otherwise it could be take off paint.
So I would like to recommend you must check out http://www.best-pressure-washer-reviews.com/ before going to buy it OR use it.


Good luck!

thompsonmike, the drive type is not really an issue here. There are other reasons why one should consider gas or electric washer. For car washing make sure you do not buy too powerful unit. Cold water washer up to 2000 PSI is what you should consider. Small consumer unit will do just great for you. Take a look at this AR390 pressure washer for example. Don't be afraid, a power washer won't harm your car if used carefully. Just make sure you do not spray too close to the surface

No, Only use when you need to. i.e. when (if) it's full of thick mud or similar. They are ideal for blasting away loose dirt which could scratch the surface when washing but they don't "clean" very well. They can also damage the paint finish if you get too close and the ones with the rotary nozzle can even remove the paint! Power washing the wheel arches and underside a couple of times a year, especially after winter salt, is a good idea but again avoid the rotary jet ones as they can damage the protective coating.

My advice, use a good quality sponge with lots of "proper" soap and
leave the power washer for doing the patio!

Some car accessories that are not firmly mounted on the car may get damaged in the washing process. Constant blasting from a power house may even end up loosening some parts or scraping off paint in other parts if small particles of dirt gets shot out of the hose.
