    I try to wash 1X a week but have 2 other cars to take of. But I wax 1 vehicle a month. As far as the interior all I do is empty it, wash off floor mats and take an electric leaf blower to the inside :).

    When I bought the truck I was living in Michigan. Summertime once every week, usually on Fridays after work or Saturdays after work. Wintertime I would run it through the carwash once sometimes twice a week with the underbody wash. Usually detail a few times a year. Spring, summer twice, fall, and after hunting season. Once I move back to Michigan I may be getting a vinyl wrap before the snow starts to fall.

    I try and wash mine a few times a week. Sometimes I only get to do it once. I wax it monthly, and do the interior weekly. I clean the engine monthly.

    If you are washing and waxing correctly you shouldn't be getting any swirl marks. Regardless of how much or how little you wash/wax. Swirl marks are caused by inappropriate methods or by automatic car washes.

    It's winter here, so it's been seeing the carwash once a week.
