Appearance Care

Exterior Care

Locks are lubricated at the factory. Use a de-icing agent only when absolutely necessary, and have the locks greased after using. See Recommended Fluids and Lubricants 0 321.

Washing the Vehicle
To preserve the vehicle’s finish, wash it often and out of direct sunlight.

Do not use petroleum-based, acidic, or abrasive cleaning agents as they can damage the vehicle’s paint, metal, or plastic parts. If damage occurs, it would not be covered by the vehicle warranty. Approved cleaning products can be obtained from your dealer. Follow all manufacturer directions regarding correct product usage, necessary safety precautions, and appropriate disposal of any vehicle care product.

Avoid using high-pressure washes closer than 30 cm (12 in) to the surface of the vehicle. Use of power washers exceeding 8 274 kPa (1,200 psi) can result in damage or removal of paint and decals.

If using an automatic car wash, follow the car wash instructions. The windshield wiper and rear window wiper, if equipped, must be off. Remove any accessories that may be damaged or interfere with the car wash equipment.
Rinse the vehicle well, before washing and after, to remove all cleaning agents completely. If they are allowed to dry on the surface, they could stain.
Dry the finish with a soft, clean chamois or an all-cotton towel to avoid surface scratches and water spotting. Cleaning Under hood Components.

Do not power wash any component under the hood that has this e symbol.
This could cause damage that would not be covered by the vehicle warranty.

Solvents or aggressive cleaners may harm underhood components. The usages of these chemicals should be avoided. Recommend water only. A pressure washer may be used, but care must be utilized.

The following criteria must be followed:

  • Water pressure must be kept below 14 000 KPa (2,000 PSI).
  • Water temperature must be below 80 °C (180 °F).
  • A spray nozzle with a 40-degree wide angle spray pattern or wider must be used.
  • Nozzle must be kept at least 30 cm (1 ft) away from all surfaces.

Finish Care
Application of aftermarket clearcoat sealant/ wax materials is not recommended.
If painted surfaces are damaged, see your dealer to have the damage assessed and repaired. Foreign materials such as calcium
chloride and other salts, ice-melting agents, road oil and tar, tree sap, bird droppings, chemicals from industrial chimneys, etc., can damage the vehicle’s finish if they remain on painted surfaces. Wash the vehicle as soon as possible. If necessary, use non-abrasive cleaners that are marked safe for painted surfaces to remove foreign matter. Occasional hand waxing or mild polishing should be done to remove residue from the paint finish. See your dealer for approved
cleaning products. Do not apply waxes or polishes to uncoated plastic, vinyl, rubber, decals, simulated wood, or flat paint as damage can occur.

Machine compounding or aggressive polishing on a basecoat/clearcoat paint finish may damage it. Use only non-abrasive waxes and polishes that are made for a basecoat/clearcoat paint finish on the vehicle.
To keep the paint finish looking new, keep the vehicle garaged or covered whenever possible.

Protecting Exterior Bright Metal Moldings

Failure to clean and protect the bright metal moldings can result in a hazy white finish or pitting. This damage would not be covered by the vehicle warranty.
The bright metal moldings on the vehicle are aluminum, chrome, or stainless steel. To prevent damage always follow these cleaning instructions:

  • Be sure the molding is cool to the touch before applying any cleaning solution.
  • Use only approved cleaning solutions for aluminum, chrome, or stainless steel.
    Some cleaners are highly acidic or contain alkaline substances and can damage the moldings.
  • Always dilute a concentrated cleaner according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Do not use cleaners that are not intended for automotive use.
  • Use a nonabrasive wax on the vehicle after washing to protect and extend the molding finish.
