MAINTENANCE TIPS

  • CLEANING THE INTERIOR

    A few handy tips for cleaning the interior of your Mitsubishi:

    • Clean plastic, vinyl, leather, fabric and flocked parts with a soft cloth soaked in lukewarm water and a small amount of neutral detergent.
    • Don’t use cleaners, conditioners or protectants that contain silicone or wax. These products may cause annoying reflections that obscure your vision.
    • Clean the carpet with a vacuum cleaner and remove any stains with carpet cleaner.
    • Oil and grease can be removed from carpets by lightly dabbing with a clean, colourfast cloth and stain remover.
  • CLEANING THE EXTERIOR

    Keep the exterior of your Mitsubishi looking clean and new by ensuring the following:

    • If the exterior of your vehicle comes into contact with saltwater, anti-freeze, soot or dust, iron powder, bird droppings or any corrosive chemical substances, be sure to wash it immediately.
    • After washing your vehicle, make sure all traces of soap or detergent are removed, and wipe it dry with a soft cloth.
    • After washing, also carefully clean the joints and flanges of the doors and engine hood where dirt is likely to hide from view.
    • If you live in a coastal area, it’s particularly important to wash your car regularly. Wind-born spray from the sea can distribute salt for a distance of up to 20 kilometres from the shore.
  • CLEANING THE UNDERSIDE

    For 4WD vehicles such as the Pajero, Outlander and Triton, it’s important to keep the underside clean – particularly if you drive off-road. This will remove corrosive dirt, dust and salt water.

    When washing the underside:

    • Be sure to wear a pair of rubber gloves and exercise caution.
    • Be careful not to spray water onto any electrical components in the engine compartment.
  • WEATHER PROTECTION - COLD WEATHER CARE

    As the salt and other chemicals spread on the roads in some areas in winter can have a harmful effect on your vehicle, you should clean it as often as possible to prevent corrosion and lasting damage.

    Also:

    If you live in a particularly cold area, be sure to wipe off all water from the rubber parts around the doors to prevent the doors from freezing.

    It’s also recommended you book in for a Mitsubishi Preventative Service before and after the winter months – to ensure your Mitsubishi remains in optimal condition.

  • PAINTWORK - WAXING

    Applying wax to your vehicle can help prevent the build up of dust and road chemicals on your paintwork. When doing so, be mindful that:

    • You should apply a wax solution after washing your vehicle, at least once every three months.
    • You shouldn’t wax your vehicle in direct sunlight and should only apply wax after the surfaces have cooled.
  • PAINTWORK - POLISHING

    When it comes to polishing your paintwork:

    • Only polish your vehicle if the paintwork has become stained or lost its luster.
    • Matt-finish parts and plastic bumpers mustn’t be polished as this may stain them or damage their finish.
