Men generalY clean their cars more than they do the House. Is that really true?
In my own experience, men (and women too) are generally pretty consistent across the board...if they don't take care of the house, much of the time they have tons of garbage in their vehicle, and these seem to be the people who are severely obese or otherwise show signs of not living a healthy lifestyle. On the other hand, the people I know who have clean cars also have fairly clean houses and cleaner, healthier lifestyles.
Shiny and clean protects the car and stops all the acids and other contaminants from eating it!
I found many women will spend on safety items during service where men will try to save the money and take the risk even when you show them the worn out part and explain the risks.
I also know men who are so fussy mechanically that they are weird! I am sadly one of them!
That is sort of according to the man and sometimes the car.
I ain't all that thrilled with cleaning up the mini van but when I had the Cobra, the Trans Am and the Corvette I lived in the garage!
I think it depends solely on the person and how they feel about the car. You could have a camaro and hate it and treat it like crap or another person with the same "piece of crap camaro" and they may want it to shine like gold cause they like it. That goes for women too
When I was single, I kept my car in better shape than my apartment....loved to wax that beauty! Now, it's a different story... ha ha ha
Men may clean the car, but I can tell you as a retired workshop owner that women are smarter with regular preventative maintenance and servicing of the family car!
does putting air in the tires count... and checking the oil???
I do keep my car clean. I hate to see messy cars,
My car is spotless and our home is spotless maybe I am to much like " Bri" on Desperate Housewives.
My husband also does his share of the housework lucky me.
I think it depends on the person really. But i vote yes.. im a 31 y/o man and i think i clean my car to much. Wash once a week, wax once a month, i over do it on the tire shine what can i say i love my car!
Generally, if women are independent, they do car care by the book and tend to be more proactive. I suppose it could be because they have a smaller tolerance for risk taking. They also are more trusting and believe their mechanic so can be taken as easy customers for stuff that doesn't need fixing.
My ex husband was very particular about our cars. I wasn't allowed to wash either one with the outside hose water because he was worried there may be something bad in the irrigation water that could damage the paint...
Hose water seemed just fine to me. Cleaned off the dirt, didn't it?
The more you love your car, the more you would like it to be in tip-top condition, regardless of men or women.
In general, men tend to treat their cars as wives or mistresses especially when they are brand new. However when their cars age, their love towards their cars fades.
my aunt always told me that the way a man looks after his car is the way he will look after a woman.
LOL we affectionately referred to my 2nd hubby's Scottdale truck as the rustmobile. He drove it and put gas and oil in it but that was the extent of the care he gave that truck. God love him he was the best but when it came to cars they were there for a purpose and that was to get from here to there. I on the other hand was married to a car fanatic the first time around and learned to keep up with all the mechanical things. Guess what - my car broke down mechanically before the rustmobile did. Go figure!!!!!
Yes. A true statement is men take care of their cars more than woman. Often they take better care of their cars than the house.
Women make up roughly 62% of automotive service decision makers in the U.S. as of a year or so ago. They are typically more conscientious about maintenance, not because "girls aren't mechanical and can't do it themselves" but because they are frequently the ones getting things done for the family.
The stereotypical male envisioned as working on his own car is a rapidly vanishing myth as less and less can be done by "shade tree" mechanics for reasons of required equipment and knowledge and for reasons of vehicles lasting much longer with little need of service.
Men also do not like admitting they know nothing about their vehicles and so they allow the duty of maintenance to fall to women, whether consciously or unconsciously, to remove themselves from failing the stereotype they can't live up to and feel is expected of them in an age where the technology is less and less in the realm of hobby.
As long as you can see through your windshield the traffic patrol waving his hands at you...
Yes Women take care of their cars more than men do.Women are more concern about safety terms and want their car look awesome........
My house is a complete mess, I seldom wash myself or my children however my car is spotless and waxed daily with the finest brazilian carnuba wax and stored in a oxygen rich bubble in a temperature controlled enviroment.

FOR BOTH PARTIES INTERESTED... Guys, what this comes down to is that women look to men to help them feel better about themselves through the giving of female support. When a man fails to say and do the right things at...

Does anyone else think this is getting out of hand? I read yesterday that GM will close 5 more plants and lay off 20,000 more U.S. workers but they need $14 billion to do it. How many jobs could we lose for $28 billion?...

Why do women play with their hair when they do something wrong while driving?
