1Interior Care  
Do not spill liquids inside the vehicle.  
Electrical devices and systems may malfunction if  
liquids are splashed on them.  
Cleaning Seat Belts  
Do not use silicone based sprays on electrical devices  
such as audio devices and switches.  
Doing so may cause the items to malfunction or a fire  
inside the vehicle.  
Use a soft brush with a mixture of mild soap and warm water to clean the seat belts.  
Let the belts air dry. Wipe the openings of the seat belt anchors using a clean cloth.  
If a silicone based spray is inadvertently used on  
electrical devices, consult a dealer.  
Depending on their composition, chemicals and  
liquid aromatics may cause discoloration, wrinkles,  
and cracking to resin-based parts and textiles.  
Do not use alkali solvents or organic solvents such as  
benzene or gasoline.  
After using chemicals, make sure to gently wipe them  
away using a dry cloth.  
Do not place used cloths on top of resin based parts  
or textiles for long periods of time without washing.

1Floor Mats  
Floor Mats  
If you use any floor mats that were not originally  
provided with your vehicle, make sure they are  
designed for your specific vehicle, fit correctly, and  
are securely anchored by the floor anchors.  
Position the rear seat floor mats properly. If they are  
not properly positioned, the floor mats can interfere  
with the front seat functions.  
The driver’s floor mat hooks over the floor  
anchors, which keep the mat from sliding  
forward. To remove a mat for cleaning, turn  
the anchor knobs to the unlock position.  
When reinstalling the mat after cleaning, turn  
the knobs to the lock position.  
Do not put additional floor mats on top of  
the anchored mat.  
Maintaining Genuine Leather*  
Vacuum dirt and dust from the leather frequently. Pay close attention to the pleats  
and seams. Clean the leather with a soft cloth dampened with a 90% water and  
10% neutral soap solution. Then buff it with a clean, dry cloth. Remove any dust or  
dirt on leather surfaces immediately.
