The worst place to work for teenagers. The manager lacks the ability to run a business. She talks bad the kids and about them to the other employees. Don’t let your child work please learn from my mistakes.

Thoroughbreds always awesome. Kristin was there to help get us signed in. She let us know about the specials they have and was very thorough and offered several packages. After the wash she came over to the vacuum to make sure we didn’t have any questions. The vacuums had excellent suction and the wash was awesome better than the car wash in bowling green!

I’d like to recognize Javan; he was excellent! What great customer service, fast and courteous . The wash itself did great on my truck, dryers are a nice bonus that I was looking for and the Vacuums are good there.

Kristin was staying out in the cold all day explaining they we’re having trouble with one of the sprayers. She has been so helpful and professional every time we have been there. Just wanted someone to know how hard she works and is so good to the customers. I will hire her to work for us if I ever get the chance.

It's OK! It will just knock the dirt off, but it doesn't really clean your car. It's really don't knock any dirt off your wheels either, it's OK! I think it costs too much for what you get!

Good wash. But if you are going to advertise Graphene X in your top wash, maybe you should have it available. Other than that, seemed pretty good.Thank you for the reply, but your attendant specifically said that you were out of Graphene X on the Secretariat wash. I asked again and she confirmed that the Graphine X was out, but still a good wash.

Very pleased with the staff very helpful and generous they all deserve a raise!!!! Only downfall from the carwash would be the dryers don’t seem to get the veichles dried enough still no complaints just wish they were a bit better….. edit. The staff doesn’t care about really cleaning your car they do a aweful job cleaning the front of your veichle with the spray and don’t care about your wheel wells what’s so ever they seem to care more about the customers that don’t have the memberships

Car wash is great, good people, and good service. However the ONLY location is ALWAYS busy and it takes FOREVER to get through the car wash! Highly recommend to the owners to maybe open up a second location on the other side of town! I pay for the monthly membership, but hardly get to use it because the one location is so busy!

Best auto car wash in town. Reasonable rates for unlimited washing. I get my $$$ worth every month. Plus the vacuum system and complimentary rags and windex are a great way to get your ride clean every weekend. Save time and money, use Thoroughbred Express.

If you car is slightly dirty this place does great. Especially on a good paint job. But don't expect to get snow/salt, dirt/mud off of it completely. That any auto wash though. The service was great and I've had many great washes here.

Great car wash all around! Definitely worth it they offer free self serve vacum ,detailing spray, towels, car fragrance also have a mat washer. All these things combined with the automated wash give you exactly what you need and want from a car wash. I'd rate it 5 stars and definitely recommend it

I have two separate monthly accounts and I managed to go there daily to get my car washed. The employees there go way out of their way to make sure that you were taken care of and are very nice! I recommend them to anyone in the Russellville area! The wash it self is awesome and my car is never ever dirty anymore.

Brushes left scuffs on the tailgate and tailgate had just been repainted and put back on like the day before and was absolutely flawless untill I went through the car wash. The paint was fully cured it sat in the shop for 60 days. There was also other spots on the corner of the cab on the truck that was scuffed but mostly the tailgate was what got the most damage, definitely will not be using this car wash again.. Customer service was great thoughI will not be comin back very unhappy

We have a monthly membership here, and we tend to take our car to get washed every single day. All the employees we have ever had interactions with have always provided us with the best experience! Also, we love all of the free services that we are able to utilize with our car wash (vacuum, air hose, cleaner, rags, etc.)
