Help your engine perform best in the long run
When you purchase a brand-new vehicle, the first 1,000 km or so are a “run-in” period, during which gentle practices help your engine perform best in the long run.
- Make a smooth start, do not slam your foot down on the pedal too hard, and do not rev the engine too high.
- Warm up the car for a little longer than usual (30 seconds to a minute).
- Drive your vehicle at various speeds to help expose internal components to a variety of conditions.
- Choose roads in good condition to avoid excessive vibration, collisions or emergency braking.
- Choose high-quality fuel and oil, and it’s not recommended to use engine anti-wear additives.
- Avoid overloading. Load under 70% of the carrying capacity during run-in period (no more than 290 kg for an automatic, and no more than 320 kg for a manual).
- Strictly control speed. DO not exceed 100 km/h during run in period.
