Did you just buy a dream car of yours?  You might have heard from your dealer that you need to properly break-in your car in order to make it last as long as possible for the best condition, but very few people know how to properly break-in the car.  Here are some general tips to remember when you just bought your new car during the break-in period.

  • Keep your car speed under 60 mph or to the speed recommended by your car's manufacturer for the first 1000 miles.
  • If you operate a manual shift car, try to keep your engine below 3000 to 4000 rpm recommended by your car's manufacturer.
  • Always lightly accelerate your car.
  • Do not let your new car to idle for a long time if you want to have longer life of your car.  If you let your new car to idle too long, the oil pressure generated may not be sending oil to every  part of your engine.
  • Do not overload your drive train during your break-in period, such as towing trailders or loading piles of heavy stuffs onto the car.
