So you’ve just bought your new car. What should you do now? You should be preparing to help break your car in with a number of practices in order to keep your car feeling new and free of any costly repairs. How you handle your car in the first few months of buying it can determine what happens later on in the car’s lifetime. Here are some of the practices that will help you keep your car running well years after you make that initial purchase.

Breaking in your new car

To break in your new car, you want to take delicate care of the engine, which is basically the heart of your car. When performing an engine run-in (another term for breaking in) you want to make sure that you vary your speeds. By doing this, your engine will get improved piston ring seating which lengths the lifespan of the engine and improves lifetime quality. Although you want to vary your speeds, you don’t want to make any sudden or hard acceleration. This could potentially damage the engine. You want to make all of your accelerations gradual.
