    Matte Gray Paint - Special Care Needed:

    Matte paint is a unique exterior treatment that gives your Veloster Turbo a distinctive appearance. Matte paint needs some special care to maintain its appearance.

    Matte finishes are different from other automotive paints. Typical gloss paints use a clear-coat finish that reflects light and gives a shiny appearance. A matte finish uses a different coating that defuses light, providing its unique “flat” finish.

    Your Paint Finish and Your Warranty
  • Paint Warranty (2013 model) – Paint repairs are covered for the first 36 months from the date
        of original retail delivery or date of first use or 36,000 miles, whichever occurs first. See your
        “Owner's Handbook and Warranty Information” booklet for more details.

  • Please note that while the standard Hyundai paint warranty applies to defects in material
        and/or workmanship, it does not cover the vehicle’s matte finish surface appearance.
        Maintaining the matte appearance is solely the responsibility of the vehicle owner.

    Matte Gray DON’Ts and DOs
  • Do not use wax, detail spray, ArmorAll®, or any products made for normal paint. Use only
        products specifically developed for matte finish paint.
  • Do not use products that are even mildly abrasive, such as polishes, glazes, or rubbing
  • Do not use mechanical cleaners or polishers.
  • Do not use terrycloth, cloth or paper towels. Do not rub the fin ish vigorously – this will
       burnish the paint finish causing a permanent shiny spot. Shiny spots cannot be removed.
  • Do not use commercial car wash facilities or their shine enhancement products. Most carwash
       brushes, large mechanized “towels” and shine enhancement products can damage matte paint.
  • Remove foreign substances such as insect remains, tar, and road debris using a soft
        applicator and a mild solvent, saturate and soak area before cleaning – rub lightly.
  • Hand-wash with a soft wash mitt and mild cleaning product safe for matte paint (see Matte
        Paint Finish Resources).
  • Use microfiber cleaning cloths with alcohol-based window cleaner, for basic surface clean-up.
