Car wash mode

The manual says "The vehicle is not designed to stay in N (Neutral) for extended periods of time. It will automatically shift into P (Park)."

I'm assuming that Car Wash Mode lets you stay in N indefinitely.

Does anyone know how you can stay in N before it automatically shifts to P? Is it just based on time or are there other factors (like if the wheels are moving, if there's someone in the driver's seat).

From the manual. (There's also directions for doing it with the vehicle off)

Car Wash Mode (Vehicle On)
To place the vehicle in N (Neutral)
with the vehicle running:
1. Open the door while pressing
the brake, then shift to
N (Neutral).
2. The indicator should now show
N. If it does not, select
N (Neutral) again.
3. Shift into P (Park) upon
returning to the vehicle.
