    Clean underbody with plain water

    The underbody of a vehicle seals off the cabin and trunk area from outside elements. The vehicle underbody is open to outside elements such as dirt, mud, salt, rust, grease, grime. Over time, these can build up and cause damage. Cleaning the vehicle underbody, as recommended by the manufacturer's maintenance recommendation, can help keep the underbody clean and in good condition and also help maintain it's value.
