New study suggests that women drive dirtier than men – at least in Britain [w/poll]

Filed under: Etc., UK

We’ll be the first to admit that we’re not the most fastidious folks when it comes to a clean vehicle. It’s not that we don’t pride ourselves in having a clean-as-can-be car, it’s just that there are more pressing things on our schedule most days. The good news is, we’re not alone. According to research worked up by Autoquake – an online vehicle retailer in the UK – nearly half of drivers surveyed clean their vehicle in intervals of six months or more. Hey, even we aren’t that bad. Even more interestingly, the poll found that women are more likely to leave their ride dirty than men.

Around 56 percent of the women in the study said that they leave their vehicle unwashed for six months or more while 44 percent of men said the same. Granted, leaving half a year’s worth of grime to eat away at your vehicle’s bodywork is bad, but it gets worse: Four percent of those surveyed said that they never clean their vehicle.

This lead us to wonder – how often do give your vehicle the once-over? Come clean in our poll below, and don’t forget to check out the full press release from Autoquake after the jump.
