New tires need to be run-in for approximately
300 mi (500 km). During this time, you may experience different driving characteristics.
Brakes and Clutch
Avoid heavy use of the brakes and clutch if possible for the first
100 mi (150 km) in town and for the first
1000 mi (1,500 km) on freeways.
Avoid driving too fast during the first
1000 mi (1,500 km). Vary your speed frequently and change up through the gears early. Do not labor the engine.
Vehicles With a Diesel Engine
During the first
2000 mi (3,000 km), you may notice a ticking sound when your vehicle slows down. This is due to adjustments of your new diesel engine and is normal.
