Subaru's world-renowned engineering is legendary, and the exclusive BOXER<®> engine is no exception. When it comes to breaking in your new ride, there's a couple of things you should know about Subaru. These are just the basics, but our Service Department at Nate Wade Subaru and our technicians are available for any specific questions or concerns you may have. No matter the Subaru, the essential knowledge of your break-in period is the same. For the first 1,000 miles, your Subaru needs a variety of speeds from highways to everyday city driving, and you'll want to avoid late or aggressive shifting while your engine is being broken in. This means you'll need to keep your engine's RPMs below 4,000. The same applies for breaking in a new Subaru Impreza: avoid hard stops and starts and excessive high speeds. We understand the temptation to push your new ride and really see what it can do. Especially if you're driving the new Subaru WRX or the Subaru BRZ; unleashing the power of that engine is one of the perks of purchase. Restraining yourself during these first thousand miles is key to keeping your Subaru going as long as possible. IHS Automotive recognizes Subaru models as one of the longest lasting vehicles on the market and ensuring you follow these breaking guidelines will keep your vehicle going for a longer time. Come see us at Nate Wade Subaru for more specifics on your new ride.
