I use to wax the car every week during the summer months. But with a full time job and studying for my GMAT. I have slacked off big time and it once every 2 weeks or so.

I just know it needs to be done more often.

used to wash it every week, wax maybe every 2-3 weeks.

Now i'm lucky if i can detail it every month or so, but i don't drive it much so it doesn't really get too dirty.

In the winter, i'll run it through the carwash if there's salt on it, but again it doesn't get driven much.

The SE and SVT get washed about once/week. The SE gets waxed about once per year and the SVT will prolly get waxed about once per season.

same here, for my Cougar anyway.
For the GL, I wash it probably every few weeks in the winter, and roughly once a month the rest of the year.
Wax is a little less frequent than the washings on both cars.
It's awesome to wash the Cougar and watch it bead, despite infrequent polishing.

the merc gets washed/waxed about twice a month, or washed whenever it needs it really.
