Chevrolet Spark Owners Manual: Washing the Vehicle

To preserve the vehicle's finish, wash it often and out of direct sunlight.

Caution

Approved cleaning products can be obtained from your dealer. Follow all manufacturer directions regarding correct product usage, necessary safety precautions, and appropriate disposal of any vehicle care product.
