How often do you wash your car ?
Ok, simple answer would be when its gets really dirty.
Ideally how often should you wash your car or keep it dirty ?
Why keep it dirty ?
In coastal areas where the water is salty and so is the air, frequent washing can accelerate the rusting ?
Keep your thoughts coming in.

I will wash my car every week, as I would drive only on my weekends a pressure was will be give when ever she is taken in the rain, a complete wash (body and under chassis). Engine area will be washed only when she is taken for service or if I think there is lot of dust, I normally wipe the engine area with a wet cloth and a dry one, also the inner bonnet is wiped in cloth.

Once a week unless its really dirty midweek.
I know lots of people wash it more frequently, even daily. That should have been an option too.

My S10 gets washed every day, Monday - Saturday and on Sunday it's my Gypsy King that gets a wash.
Every alternate week, interior cleaning happens.
All this is done by the cleaner at our apartment for 300 bucks p.m.

I like my car dirty. Every time I wash it, it gets dirty 10 minutes later. So I just wash it during every service
Or when it rains, which is when I am forced to use it.

Well my car gets washed by MOTHER NATURE. Rain baby Rain.
Its been raining for almost 1 month now and i have not washed my car. The exterior still looks clean compared to interior.
I wash my car on an average once a week. Though it gets dirty every 4 days.

My watchman washes my car daily and it is ready by 8AM. I particularly tell him to wash the tyres as i am finicky about them being jet black ( as in showroom condition) and i spray tyre shiners once a week, 2 days after the shiner is sprayed, instructions not to wash the tyres
Interiors are vaccumed twice a week ( Wednesday/Sunday)

Apparently if you keep the car dirty, there is more chance of moisture being trapped there and more chance of rusting. Atleast thats another viewpoint i have heard.
