When to Wash Your Car

Washing your car is a basic aspect of attentive auto ownership. How often should you wash your car? We here at Jaguar Cerritos in Cerritos, CA get asked this question often. There are no hard and fast rules, but here are some suggestions to make you a more informed car owner.

Climate, Usage & Parking

Do live in a harsh climate? How often do you use your car? Do you have a garage or at least covered parking? If you live in a mild climate and park your car inside a garage, twice monthly washings are sufficient. Your car may require more frequent washing as the seasons change and the elements become harsher.

Exposure, Pollutants, Commuting

Do you park your car on the street? It is often exposed to dust, pollen, bug guts, airborne pollutants, salt, and bird droppings? These irritants can damage your car's paint, finish, and undercarriage.

If you park your car outside most of the time, a weekly car washing schedule is advisable. Weekly washing cleanses away irritants that can reek lasting damage on your car's interior and exterior.
