A spray nozzle with a
40 degree wide angle spray
pattern or wider must be
used, and 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. 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 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
Occasional hand waxing or
mild polishing should be done
to remove residue from the
paint finish. See your dealer
for approved cleaning
Do not apply waxes or
polishes to uncoated plastic,
vinyl, rubber, decals,
simulated wood, or matte
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
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
manufacturers instructions.
