How do I break in the vehicle?

A: If you purchase your vehicle new, you will ...

If you purchase your vehicle new, you will want to break it in. This means that you’ll drive differently (usually more conservatively) until the car is worn in and ready for usual driving. Here are a few things you should do while breaking in your vehicle: 1. Avoid strong braking (unless necessary) for the first 200 miles. 2. Avoid cruise control, or driving at a very constant speed, for the first 500 miles. Also avoid downshifting as a means of braking during this time. 3. Avoid strong acceleration, or speeds above 68 mph for the first 600 miles. 4. Between miles 600 and 3,000, only exceed 68 mph in chunks of five minutes or less. 5. Avoid towing a trailer for the first 3,000 miles.
