Question: What’s The Break In Period On A New Car??

“The break-in period is a ‘general’ recommendation,” Ron Kiino, manager of product communications for Subaru of America, says via email.

“Usually for the first 1,000 miles, the break-in period can be different for certain types of cars or engines (longer/shorter mileage, lower/higher rpm limits, etc).

At what speed should a new car be driven?

Doing an engine break-in used to be a standard procedure with new cars. And it’s still the case that you should avoid running the engine at high RPM for the first 1,300 miles. Experts recommend a maximum 3,500 rpm and 90 mph in diesel models and 4,500 rpm and 100 mph in gas models.

Do you still need to run in new cars?

A: Most new cars don’t require running-in, but you certainly won’t do your engine any harm by taking it easy for the first few hundred miles. This used to be the responsibility of the owner, but many modern car engines either don’t require running in, or the procedure is done on a ‘bench’ at the factory.
