Default Waxing

So I know you're supposed to wax your car every so often but they make a wash that is supposed to wash your car and wax it at the same time. I was wondering if its good enough to use that or if you really need to wax it.

There is no substitute for a proper wax.

As Mike said, its no substitute for a real waxing. It hardly leaves anything behind to protect the paint...

You will never get good results with any "wash wax" products. I've tried the Megs wash and wax and I can say that it produces lots of suds which is great for removing the dirt, but I'm not impressed with the result.
