They are too powerful and the water will get into places you never thought it would, it is good for cleaning the wheels and under the body and wings though.
I mainly use mine for cleaning patios etc, they are so powerful I do not use any detergent, any dirt is just blasted off!

Depends on what sort of washer you have. Certainly most of the cheaper domestic power washers are not as powerful as the ones at the local garage- some of them have a massive kick back from th elance.
As previously mentioned on lonly ever use mine on the "wide" fan spray pattern which is far less pressure than the needle jets.
