Chassis and underbody protectionChassis and underbody protection  - Cleaning the outside of your vehicle - Vehicle care - Mitsubishi Carisma Owner's Manual - Mitsubishi Carisma

Your vehicle’s underbody has been treated at the factory in order to protect it from rust and corrosion. Some areas have been injected with anti-corrosion agents and wax. The effectiveness of these measures, however, will be reduced by flying stones, road chemicals, etc., as the vehicle is driven. You should take your vehicle to your authorized MITSUBISHI dealer every 12 months to have body sheet metal inspected for condition, and it is recommended to have the underbody checked regularly (autumn and spring) and have additional protection treatment carried out as required.

As not all of the commercially available materials are suitable for use on your vehicle, it is recommended that you have this work carried out by an authorized MITSUBISHI dealer.

When washing the vehicle, especially in winter, spray the underbody with water to remove dirt and dust which might contain salts, road chemicals, etc.
