The car received a thorough and complete rustproofing at the factory. Parts of the body are made of galvanised sheet metal. The underbody is protected by a wear-resistant anti-corrosion compound. A thin, penetrating rustproofing fluid was sprayed into the exposed members, cavities, closed sections and side doors.
Inspection and maintenance
The car's anti-corrosion protection does not normally need to be maintained, but keeping the car clean always helps to further reduce the risk of corrosion. Strong alkaline or acidic cleaning solutions must always be avoided on the glossy trim components. Any stone chips should be rectified as soon as they are discovered.
