Why Do I Need to Break in My New Subaru?

Breaking in your new Subaru is important for a few reasons. Engine components, lubricants, and oils have come quite a long way, so braking in your new vehicle isn't what it used to be. However, honoring the break-in period can still help the performance of your Subaru down the road because it gives your vehicle a chance to condition mechanical parts, establish seal surfaces, seat new piston rings and more. In short, following the procedure of breaking in your new Subaru helps everything settle in to place for the thousands of miles to come.

How Do I Break in My New Subaru?

Breaking in your new vehicle is quite simple. It's recommended that, for about the first 1,000 miles, you don't put an excessive amount of stress on the engine. This means avoiding racing the engine. Do your best to make sure the engine speed does not exceed 4,000 rpm unless it's an emergency. Also, drive at variable speeds and avoid spending extended periods of time driving at one constant speed, whether fast or slow. Avoid sudden starts, rapid acceleration, and stops unless it's an emergency. Finally, it's very important that you get your oil changed once you reach around 1,000 miles. This is because metal will have worn off while mating surfaces were establishing, and you'll want to remove those metal scraps from the engine before they cause damage. Follow these easy steps and you'll enjoy your Subaru for years to come!
