Love Thy Car

Know how to take care of your car

BE PATIENT DURING THE BREAK-IN PERIOD
1) During the break-in period, typically the first 1,500 kms, keep your speed under 90 km/hr or to the speed recommended by your cars manufacturer.
2) Avoid heavy loads on the drive train, such as towing other vehicles, and loading the roof rack or trunk with heavy materials.
3) Do not allow your new car to idle for long periods - this is good advice for the life of your car, but especially during breakin. The oil pressure generated by doing so may not be sending oil to every part of your engine.
4) Use only light to medium acceleration, keep the engine rpms below 3,000 for the first few hours of driving.
