I've always steered clear of pressure washers on the car as I've always assumed that using them strips any wax off. Looks good straight after the wash, but you've now lost any wax protection.

No scientific basis for this, just observation having seen the cracking job a pressure washer did when cleaning my driveway. Am I correct in thinking this?

If used with just water then yes. However if you use car shampoo/wax then its no different.

Power washers on their own at full pressure and no shampoo/wax are not a good idea.
