Car Wash are nothing new to the LEGO City theme, but always in bigger sets. The set 60362 Car Wash is dedicated just to this theme, with a good relation between functions and price, allowing many people to have a car wash without spending a lot of money. So let’s talk better about this set.

Cars in this theme never say anything special to me, and here it didn’t change much. As I say, it’s more of the same. But some positive aspects I have to highlight, such as the good proportion of the car and the use of wide tires, giving it an off-road feel, and also the design of the rear area of the car.

The combination of yellow and green colors can be something different and pleasant for many, but for me, it doesn’t mean anything. The roof is easily removed, with space for a minifigure and also has a place to place an accessory (which does not come with the set, but the space is there).

Speaking now of the building, the Car Wash. This structure is more compact when compared to other models that already exist (it measures about 14 cm wide and has little depth), but it includes extra features, which is always a good thing. The washing brushes are in blue (I think it’s Medium Azure) thus being a new color for this piece.

On top, we have a plate with one of the stickers used in this set where we find “Car Wash” written, but with a good design (the other sticker is on the car’s licence plate) When the car passes through the brushes, these become flexible, so as it happens in reality, with a simple and functional mechanism (although it doesn’t always work with the bigger brush).

One detail that I found super interesting is that when the car passes, we can put foam on top of it (the part that simulates an ice cream is used). It would be perfect if this happened automatically, but unfortunately it has to be done manually. Finally, we have the fans to dry the car, which is also well done.

Despite the small size, there are some small details, such as a tire pressure gauge, which is attached using Technic pins.


In this set we can find 2 minifigures, the Car Wash employee and the driver of the car.

The clerk has a blue cap, the same color as his overalls. I liked the choice of head, which until now had only been used on a minifigure (Police Chief Wheeler). The driver of the car has a new torso, also found in the 40650 Land Rover Classic Defender set, which has several pineapples as decoration (it seems that the use of fruits as decoration on the torsos has caught on in the City theme).

The legs are the same shade as the t-shirt, a light blue, which works well. Her hair is blonde, and her face has only one expression. In short, 2 simple minifigures, within what we usually find in this theme.

Value and Parts

This set has 243 pieces and 2 minifigures. The value is the usual in this type of sets, €19.99, £17.99 or, oddly enough and without any reason, $32.99 in America which makes this set too expensive.
