The advanced engineering in your new Subaru is renowned across the globe and there are a few things to know when breaking in your new Boxer engine. Here are some basic things to keep in mind when you break in a new Subaru but stop by our Service Center at Nate Wade Subaru to find out more specific information about your Subaru engine break in period. Whether you are looking to break in a new Subaru Forester or break in a new Subaru Outback, the basics are essentially the same. For the first 1,000 miles, you want to break in your Boxer engine with a range of speeds from city to highway. One of the key things to remember during this break in period is to keep the engine RPMs below 4,000. This means avoiding aggressive down shifting and late shifting. Just as you would when you break in a new Subaru Impreza, you want to avoid hard starts and stops as well as excessively high speeds. For some, it may prove hard to hold back from unleashing all of the power when breaking in a new Subaru WRX and we understand that it can also be hard not to break in a Subaru BRZ by pushing it hard, but this is necessary to ensure a long reliable engine life in the future. The break in period is also the same for the Subaru Crosstrek. Subaru models are recognized by IHS Automotive as some of the longest lasting vehicles on the market and following these basic break in guidelines for your new Subaru is the best way to go. Come see us for more information at Nate Wade Subaru.
