    I try to when I can. Honestly though, I havent washed her new car once. We got her a Rav4 back in November and the weather has pretty much been crappy since then. I barely have enough time to spend with my own.

    At least she knows to take it to a touch free wash if she just has to have it cleaned.

    Good grief don't any of you guys wash your significance’s udders! We need pictures, LOL!

    I was really surprised that the majority of you guys considered your wives/girlfriends as real humans to be cherished, hats off, there is hope for you all to make it.

    In the past, my wife didn't give a damn about how her car looked (inside or out) so she never cleaned it and never asked me to....I mean it WAS a 1998 Dodge Neon. I took very good care of my 01 Focus on the other hand. When it came time to sell them both, I got over KBB and she got under KBB. Both ran great, but mine was impeccable.

    Then we got her an Outback and she started to keep the inside clean(er) and asked me if I would clean the outside occasionally. Now she has a brand new Impreza and starts getting twitchy when she hits a puddle or the dog messes up the back. Now I wash it more than my Tacoma. She does a lot around the house and I like keeping it clean.

    My wife takes her car to the car wash at such random times, I don't bother. She says the $20 is no big deal and she already knows I wash my truck about once every 6 months.

    Now that I have a pressure washer, I wash mine more often but I just hate the detailing part. Spray off the mud and drive it dry.

    Yep, I apply sealant and detail the interior every three months. I like the fact Mazda uses a triple stage pearl white. Wish Toyota would do the same. Maybe not pearl but a clear coat would be nice.
