My wife haf a little red go fast car for a while. She did the deluxe $20 wash every week or so. Understand I very seldom got into that car, but for a surprise, I made a appointment to have it detailed.

Detail day comes and goes. Car was already spotless. Easiest $150 those guys ever made.

Moral of story.... A vehicle deluxed washed often is as good as any detail job I have ever seen.

I try to get it done once a month. Out here it used to be $39 for what I would call a detail and they did it all. Now Stripes has changed their structuring and it’s cheaper and crappier or you can pay $99 and get the full thing including wax. I got the full detail and all they waxed was the doors and the fenders. Even the inside was done pretty bad so I quit going. I have had a few different mobile detailers do it at the shop but they all either don’t show up or they half [censored] it.

The Wife has hers detailed in Miniola when needed, great job, Me and my Mounaineer, always to the $1.00 wash place, looks good to me, however I do wash the windows.

My truck only gets washed after an extra muddy lease trip (like yesterday) or the rare time at the dealership. The hand car wash in Cisco is the absolute best...great power, hot water, a lot of time for the buck, and big stalls.

Mine is a 2015 and I haven't washed it since it was 2 months old....

I have been thinking I need to wash/wax and vacuum the interior and add an air freshener, its starting to get an aroma like an old work truck.

To me detail = hand wash and wax at a min, don't think your gonna get that for no $20. When I was in high school I hand washed and waxed my namesake red chevy every 2 weeks, damn that truck looked GOOD! Never had one since I cared to look at that much.

I get the $9 wash at fuel city down the street about 3-4 times a year. I tip the guy at the entrance that scrubs the grill before you go though and ask him to scrub the tailgate good since the wash doesnt get it all.

You'll smell a world of difference if you just change the interior air filter.

It doesn't have one. The RAM's in my year range you have to cut a hole in the duct and install a door/hatch to put a filter in it.

Probably wash mine once or twice a month and that's running thru a local wash and then wiping and detailing it myself. I drive my truck into a refinery daily so there's no need to keep it spotless with the dirt and grim it sees.

I keep the inside hospital clean as my OCD is pretty strong.

THIS

my truck gets washed weekly, "ProClean" exterior only, $20, towel dry with wheeels and tires.

I wont drive in chitty weather, stays in garage, which is "off road" for me.

even been looking at selling it and downsizing. Its like parking a battle ship.
