I find that , when going into a carwash, that all you need do is put it in 'Neutral' . All that seems WAY over kill for a carwash. Might be useful in other ways...

What? I just went through the carwash. I pulled up, kept the engine running, pulled forward, turned the dial to "N" and it was in neutral. That sounds more like leaving it in neutral with the engine or power off for towing.
