Vinyl

Remove dust and loose dirt from vinyl with a whisk broom or vacuum cleaner.

Clean vinyl with a leather-and-vinyl cleaner.

Leather*

Remove dust and sand first using a vacuum cleaner or other means, then wipe dirt off using a soft cloth with a leather cleaner or a soft cloth soaked in mild soap.

Wipe off the remaining cleaner or soap using a cloth soaked in clean water and wrung out well.

Remove moisture with a dry, soft cloth and allow the leather to further dry in a well-ventilated, shaded area. If the leather gets wet such as from rain, also remove moisture and dry it as soon as possible.

NOTE

  • Because genuine leather is a natural material, its surface is not uniform and it may have natural scars, scratches, and wrinkles.
  • To maintain the quality for as long as possible, periodical maintenance, about twice a year, is recommended.
  • Sand and dust on the seat surface may damage the overcoat of the genuine leather surfaces and accelerate wear.
  • Greasy soiling on genuine leather may cause molding and stains.
  • Rubbing hard with a stiff brush or cloth may cause damage.
  • Do not wipe the leather using alcohol, chlorine bleach, or organic solvents such as thinner, benzene, or gasoline.

    Otherwise, it may cause discoloration or stains.

  • If the seats get wet, promptly remove moisture with a dry cloth. Remaining moisture on the surface may cause deterioration such as hardening and shrinkage.
  • Exposure to direct sunlight for long periods may cause deterioration and shrinkage. When parking the car under direct sunlight for long periods, shade the interior using sunshades.
  • Do not leave vinyl products on the seats for long periods as they may affect the leather quality and coloring. If the cabin temperature becomes hot, the vinyl may deteriorate and adhere to the genuine leather.

Fabric

Remove dust and loose dirt from fabric with a whisk broom or vacuum cleaner.

Clean it with a mild soap solution good for upholstery and carpets. Remove fresh spots immediately with a fabric spot cleaner.

To keep the fabric looking clean and fresh, take care of it. Otherwise its color will be affected, it can be stained easily, and its fire-resistance may be reduced.

CAUTION Use only recommended cleaners and procedures. Others may aff ect appearance and fi re-resistance.

Panel

When the interior panels need to be cleaned, use soft material such as a soft cloth soaked in clean water and wrung out well and lightly wipe off dirt from the surface. If a panel requires further cleaning, use the following procedure.

  1. Wipe dirt off using a soft cloth soaked in mild detergent (about 5% solution).
  2. Wipe off any remaining detergent using a cloth soaked in clean water and wrung out well.

NOTE

  • Do not wipe leather parts using alcohol, chlorine bleach, or organic solvents such as thinner, benzene, or gasoline.

    Otherwise, it may cause discoloration or stains.

  • Scratches or nicks on the panels and metallic trim resulting from the use of a hard brush or cloth may not be repairable.
  • Be particularly careful when cleaning high lustre panels and metallic trim as they can be easily scratched.
