Hyundai Ioniq: Exterior Care / Underbody maintenance, Aluminum wheel maintenance

Hyundai Ioniq (AE) 2017-2021 Owner's Manual / Maintenance / Exterior Care / Underbody maintenance, Aluminum wheel maintenance

Underbody maintenance

Corrosive materials used for ice and snow removal and dust control may collect on the underbody. If these materials are not removed, accelerated rusting can occur on underbody parts such as the fuel lines, frame, floor pan and exhaust system, even though they have been treated with rust protection.

Thoroughly flush the vehicle underbody and wheel openings with lukewarm or cold water once a month, after off-road driving and at the end of each winter. Pay special attention to these areas because it is difficult to see all the mud and dirt. It will do more harm than good to wet down the road grime without removing it. The lower edges of doors, rocker panels, and frame members have drain holes that should not be allowed to clog with dirt; trapped water in these areas can cause rusting.

WARNING

After washing the vehicle, test the brakes while driving slowly to see if they have been affected by water. If braking performance is impaired, dry the brakes by applying them lightly while maintaining a slow forward speed.

Aluminum wheel maintenance

The aluminum wheels are coated with a clear protective finish.

NOTICE

  • Do not use abrasive cleaner, polishing compound, solvent, or wire brushes on aluminum wheels.
  • Clean the wheel when it has cooled.
  • Use only a mild soap or neutral detergent, and rinse thoroughly with water. Also, clean the wheels after driving on salted roads.
  • Do not wash the wheels with high-speed car wash brushes.
  • Do not use any cleaners containing acid or alkaline detergents.
