Car wash question

We just got a 2006 T&C and I noticed that the antenna isn't the kind that can be put down. Is it still safe to go through a car wash with it? I would assume so, but wanted to get other people's feedback.

    I am not sure where the antenna is located on the '06, but I have a '98 DGC that has a vertical antenna located in front of the 'A' pillar on the passenger side. I have taken it through a couple of automatic car washes and have had no problems with it.; it is flimsy enough to flex to the pressures exerted by the washing machinery.

    Car wash here in Tucson, ALWAYS tapes the rear lights in as they go thru the wash. My neighbor came home the other day w/o one lens, said he was at car wash, went back, not there??

    I've had my antenna broken too many times! instead, I only use hand washing services now. I found a great site that will come to you and wash your car, basically anywhere in the's pretty amazing and I haven't had any broken antennas!! :)

    Our 08 T&C antenna screws off for the car wash. I had no idea until the attendant took if off and put it on the front seat.
