Re: Bought a 01 Gt Convertible today

For whatever it's worth, I have an '00 GT Convertible, and, for the most
part, I don't have a problem with leakage in car washes. It definitely
leaks if I go through one of the brushless car washes, where water is
power-sprayed at the car from all angles. However, when I go to one of the
soft-cloth washes, where they have people cleaning the inside and drying the
car afterwards, there's no leakage.
