How often do you wax your vehicle
Wash 1 or 2 times a week, wax every month and polish twice a year before that months waxing. My wife does her Trailblazer even more (she loves her Trailblazer).

I detail quite often due to some of the environments my truck sits in. Steel mills are hell on paint.2008 GMC Sierra 2500HD Ex. Cab, Fire Red, 6.6L Duramax LMM Equipped with UTG Rocker Pods

You will rarely see my truck with a spot of dirt on it...everyday i use a california car duster to dust her off and wipe it down with spray detail and a microfiber, i try to wash at least once a week and polish once a month, and ill clay it once a year if i skip out on a polish or waxin...i just love having/driving a clean truck....btw the best products i have used so far is Smartwax

Wax........ Is that the stuff that the Karate Kid movies made famous?
I cannot remember the last time I waxed a vehicle. Wash a few times a year.
I am going to try and be more diligent with at least hosing the undercarriages this winter.When you hear hoofbeats, look for horses not zebras.

I was the outside weekly, wax monthly and usually polish in the spring and fall. I vaccuum the inside everytime i wash and usually every 2 weeks or so i get the armor all out and do a nice interior detail. the reason i dont do the interior more is because of being in the landscaping/construction line of work, as soon as i get in my truck at the end of the day its dusty on the inside lol. i need to buy a beater to drive to work and back so i can keep my truck clean....or better....convince work to give me a truck to drive home every night-Nick

I wash weekely. Most of the time using a gas station's touchless drive through car wash.
Detail every 4-6 months. Which includes Clay barring, polish, glaze, wax and sealant.
I use a mixture of products between Zymol, Meguiars, Gloss-It and Pinnacle.~Dan
