New Subaru break-in period tips from Subaru Superstore Serving Phoenix, AZ

Why Do I Need to Break-in My Subaru?

Your Subaru first arrives on our lot with very few miles. This means that many of the metal parts, seals, and components have not yet been utilized. The break-in period adjusts your Subaru to the daily requirements of driving and allows the engine and other components to settle in. By maintaining awareness of your driving habits during the first 1,000 miles, you can get to know your Subaru and let your Subaru get to know you.

How Do I Break-in My Subaru?

Breaking-in your Subaru is fairly simple and requires only that you maintain an awareness of your driving habits. It's important to keep aware of your speed and try not to keep a consistent speed too long. It's also important to avoid starting or stopping too suddenly and revving the engine past 4,000 RPM, except in emergencies. And, when it comes to maintenance during the break-in period, be sure to schedule an oil change at 5,000 miles to clear any debris or contaminants from the engine oil.
