Mazda CX-5 overturned at carwash

On the 17th of February, photos of a brand-new Mazda CX-5 turned turtle in front of a car wash shop surfaced on social media causing Malaysians to wonder: how did a car wash go so wrong?

According to Sin Chew Daily, the car wash worker had mistakenly put the CX-5 in reverse and the car had shot out of the shop, hitting 2 cars before coming to a halt.

But video footage from a CCTV published on another Facebook page shows otherwise. The CX-5 was seen shooting out of the shop, head first, and crashing into a Proton Saga parked just outside the carwash shop before turning turtle.

Watch the video: 

Nobody was reported injured during the incident, although the fact that the car wash worker is working at the shop without permit or license has come to light.

The owner of the car wash has yet to make any comments about the situation, although we think they will soon find themselves answering to immigration authorities.



There isn’t a time in memory that doesn’t involve staring at cars. After discovering the excitement of watching Schumacher vs Hakkinen, Formula 1 became a major part of life. The love for cars and F1 ultimately led to a job with CAR Magazine. The untimely death of the magazine meant a hiatus from cars at lifestyle women’s magazine Marie Claire before another opportunity came knocking again.
