  10. Wait to re-apply wax after new purchase?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I was going to wash/wax my new 2013 iTouring Hatchback, but once I started hosing it down, the water appeared to bead. I wasn't sure if the manufacturer or dealer applies wax to new cars or how long it should last. Should I wash/wax it anyway, or wait a month or so before doing so?
