Protecting the vehicle interior

  • Remove dirt and dust using a vacuum cleaner. Wipe dirty surfaces with a cloth dampened with lukewarm water.
  • If dirt cannot be removed, wipe it off with a soft cloth dampened with neutral detergent diluted to approximately 1%.

    Wring out any excess water from the cloth and thoroughly wipe off remaining traces of detergent and water.

Cleaning the leather areas

  • Remove dirt and dust using a vacuum cleaner.
  • Wipe off any excess dirt and dust with a soft cloth dampened with diluted detergent.

    Use a diluted water solution of approximately 5% neutral wool detergent.

  • Wring out any excess water from the cloth and thoroughly wipe off all remaining traces of detergent.
  • Wipe the surface with a dry, soft cloth to remove any remaining moisture. Allow the leather to dry in a shaded and ventilated area.

Cleaning the synthetic leather areas

  • Wipe it off with a soft cloth dampened with neutral detergent diluted to approximately 1%.
  • Wring out any excess water from the cloth and thoroughly wipe off remaining traces of detergent and water.

■Caring for leather areas Toyota recommends cleaning the interior of the vehicle at least twice a year to maintain the quality of the vehicle's interior.

■Shampooing the carpets There are several commercial foaming-type cleaners available. Use a sponge or brush to apply the foam. Rub in overlapping circles. Do not use water.

Wipe dirty surfaces and let them dry. Excellent results are obtained by keeping the carpet as dry as possible.

■Seat belts Clean with mild soap and lukewarm water using a cloth or sponge. Also check the belts periodically for excessive wear, fraying or cuts.

WARNING

■Water in the vehicle

  • Do not splash or spill liquid in the vehicle.

    Doing so may cause electrical components, etc., to malfunction or catch fire.

  • Do not get any of the SRS components or wiring in the vehicle interior wet.

    An electrical malfunction may cause the airbags to deploy or not function properly, resulting in death or serious injury.

■Cleaning the interior (especially instrument panel) Do not use a polish wax or polish cleaner. The instrument panel may reflect off the windshield, obstructing the driver's view and leading to an accident, resulting in death or serious injury.
