New tires need to be run-in for approximately
500 km (300 mi). 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
150 km (100 mi) in town and for the first
1,500 km (1,000 mi) on freeways.
Avoid driving too fast during the first
1,500 km (1,000 mi). Vary your speed frequently and change up through the gears early. Do not labor the engine.
Vehicles With a Diesel Engine
During the first
3,000 km (2,000 mi), you may notice a ticking sound when your vehicle slows down. This is due to adjustments of your new diesel engine and is normal.
