How often do you clean your car?

I used to have a Honda Civic a few yrs ago. And I must say that my friends use to joke about how dirty my car was. I actually knick named my car pigpen and dirt diggler. One time I washed my car, and one of my friends thought I brought a new one. I thougth he was acting stupid but he was dead serious. Now I've been driving a Mitsubishi Galant for the last several yrs, and I washed it and kept it pretty decent. But today I noticed that I have a bunch of change laying under my drivers seat that I'm too lazy to reach under and pick up. My dash board is full of dust, and my windows and mirrors could use some windex. I go to the car wash every so often,and after washing my car I'll pull over and spend some quarters and vacume the inside. But for the most part I'm just lazy. I haven't washed my car in about 2 or 3 months, and the floors are well past due for a cleaning. A say to myself every day I need to clean up a little in case I give someone a ride, I want my car to look presentable. But then I think, if my car doesn't meet their approval, they can walk their a$$ right to the bus stop lol.

I use to keep my car pretty clean, but now that i have this one i give up. The exterior has stuff that has been on there before i bought it and i have tried scrubbing it off. i have tried cleaning the whole inside but same problem. Also i live on a dirt road so it stays dirty no matter what.

I'm pretty much the same way. I kind of just clean my car every so often. I park kmy car on the street. After I wash my car, the passenger side is always clean, and the drivers side gets dirty the minute I park it because of all the cars passing buy. I might as well call my car 2 face. One side evil and dirty and the other side clean and good natured.

I drive my Seat Leon to the carwash every 2 weeks. Every week I clean the interior with the vacuum cleaner. I just like to keep it clean. Every 2 months I do a big cleaning. It means, removing the floormats, cleaning plastics with the special liquid, etc.

I hardly wash my car, and that is bad because it is white of all colors! lol. I do try to keep it clean though, but it is hard for me to try to wash it myself because I have an SUV and I'm so short, so it is hard to reach every part of the vehicle. I don't want to always pay for someone else to wash it either. Therefore, it sucks either way lol. Oh well.

I'm the same way. I don't like paying for someone to do what I can do myself. And I do wash my own car sometimes. I do feel your pain. Having a big SUV and being so short. It's just not fair is it lol. And I'm pretty sure the color of your car isn't white if you hardly wash it. More like a brownish gray I'm guessing lol.

Lol. Actually my car does a good job of keeping itself white (except for the sides which is where most of the dirt accumulates) so I guess since it doesn't really get dirty that quickly, I don't have much motivation to wash it...

i am a very lazy boy so I never clean my car I always give my car to the wash shop so that they clean it to my luck the color off the car is black so that the dust will not appear as a dust so i am lucky if i did not clean the car
