Using dawn to strip wax has long since been debunked. Never go to an automatic wash. Use 2 bucket method for washing and use a good soap, Mother's and Meguiars are fine. Combo wash/wax products can work but wax doesn't last long compared to a good standalone wax/sealantIf you want a clean slate then use clay or AutoScrub/Nanoskin. An inexpensive long lasting and great looking sealant is Collinite 915. Be sure not to over apply it or it's a bear to remove.
3yrs and 40k miles later the finish is still like new

A question for all of you if I may...how in the heck do you deal with the black plastic that is allllllll over the Rav4? I am looking at the picture in the above post and that black trim looks great, but how do you guys get it that way? Do you use the same product you use on the paint?
Any help is appreciated!!
