It depends how dirty it gets. Now as for waxing your car--it's a good idea to wax your car once every three months or sometime every season. So you might get it to a habit of, for example, waxing the car at the beginning of spring, the beginning of summer, fall, and winter. Just wax it. As for washing, that's up to you. If you live in a dirty area, you've got to do it all the time. If it isn't dirty, you don't have to wash it as much.
