    I wash my truck pretty frequently and my wife has a Rav4 that she has maybe washed a handful of times since owning it. I will usually dedicate time to our vehicles as often as it allows (usually mine more than hers). That covers general maintenance, washing/waxing/cleaning, oil changes, and anything else that may pop up. On the other hand, I don't remember the last time I washed clothes, dishes or a toilet. Life has its tradeoffs and I'd rather clean a truck than anything else.

    Always! My wife drives a 2013 Lexus 350RX and I love cleaning and detailing it as much as my 2013 Tacoma and Prelude. Washing her car is the least I can do for her. Godspeed.

    (pic is from before all that)been like a nudist colony for the last 5 days since then...........what else can I do to it? lol

    I voted "of course" but also need to go with the last one that talks about who washes a truck, that'd be mine. It gets washed when it gets driven in the rain mostly but there are the odd quarterly scrubbins :D
