Any applied detergents have to be washed carefully away from a body surface by water before their drying. The Daewoo cars are designed for operation in normal conditions of the environment and can successfully resist to action of various natural factors. However it must be kept in mind that, for example, the wash of the car by means of a high-pressure stream of water can lead to hit of water in interior of the car.

Anticorrosive processing of a body promotes preservation of good appearance, durability and durable operation. Some details located in a motor compartment or under the bottom of a body and which are usually not visible from outside practically do not reduce the reliability because of superficial corrosion. Therefore such details do not need anticorrosive protection.
