Breaking in a new car

Take it easy for the first 1k kms or go all out ?

  • Don't live in the 90s. Hindi lang cellphone ang nagiging hi-tech, pati engine ng kotse nagiging high-tech din. Hinarurot na sa planta yang kotse bago mo pa makuha sa dealership so drive it like a normal driver would do. Syempre ibang usapan na kapag laging nakababad sa redline ang RPM mo. There's a reason why it is color red :naughty:

    Only newly overhauled or newly rebuilt engines need Breaking-In :)

    I couldn't agree more. Tested na yung kotse (especially the engine and electronics) bago mo makuha yan, so no need sa pag-breakin.

    Take it easy EVERY TIME and ALL THE TIME to save fuel. You only hit hard on the race track.

    This is the general consensus now with most engines save for some high performance cars such as the BMW M series that still require a break-in period before letting all hell loose. What's more important is you go in for the prescribed service stop after the first 1,000kms.

    Kakabili lang namin ng new SUV ng Ford last May 8, and when I asked the SA, hindi na daw kailangan ng break-in, since factory break-in na siya.

    Baka ganun din car mo.

    @Meanie!!

    Based from what I have read before most new cars being manufactured today doesn't need to be break-in due to the improvements in the manufacturing sector, in which the dimensions of the engine parts are more accurate compared to before.
  • Yeah dear its rightly said that take it easy in the first 1k of the drive.Because new vehicle need its care for better performance and durability.
