I use to enjoy cleaning my car when I was a teenager washing, waxing, then cleaning the interior about every month or so..
Now I am lucky If Wash the every six months. I park it in the garage and really after it rains it does not seem to be very dirty..

As time permits, not that often.

Once a week in the summer and warmer months, once a month in the winter.

Same here, use to be real anal about it getting dirty.  Now I let the rain wash it.  It pretty much ended once I had my black 96 Impala SS.  I will never have a black vehicle again, and it ruined the idea of keeping vehicles clean.  After I had that I was worn out on the wash and wax thing.

not too often. 2 or 3 times a year.

Whenever it rains, or snows.

The dirt and grime hold mine together.

I do vacuum the interior a couple of times a year...

Depends on how often it rains.

Less now because I have a garage now.

I wash my pickup a couple of times a year, wax it about twice per year.

I wash my wife's van about once a month on average. Less frequently in winter, moreso in summer. Waxed twice per year.

I wash my 911 whenever it gets visibly dirty. Waxed about every other wash job. It's my baby.

I've had a spray of bug guts on the front of my car for a month now.  I really need to wash it, but I keep putting it off.

I run it through a car wash about every 2-3 months.  I wash it by hand about once a year.

Once a year it goes to the dealer for it's annual service, he valets it as part of the service…

Twice a year whether it needs it or not.

maybe 2 times per year

It would be silly to wash it more than that.  The enviroment I work in isn't conducive to keeping a vehicle clean.

Lucky if it gets washed once a year. Interior hasn't been cleaned in years. I don't have time.

Just a means of conveyance and transport.
Haven't washed it yet,but it's only two years old,and I believe that the paint will take at least 10 years to cure fully. LAst one made it 16 years with only one wsh/wax, on it's 10th anniversary.

Complete detail every week in the summer.

2 coats of wax every 3 months.

It rained just the other day.

The most my car gets is a windshield squeegee at the gas station.

If you never wash your car, it will eventually reach an equilibrium condition where the rain washes off the dirt as fast as it goes on.  Saves a lot of time for more important things.  The kids will wash the car once in a while, just for the fun of it.

I do clean up the inside as necessary (usually 2-3 times a year), and keep the windows and mirrors clean as needed, for safety.
