5 Things to Avoid in a New Car

New engine

When you buy a brand new car, there are things you need to keep in mind. How you drive the car for the first 1000 kilometres is important. It is important because a new engine is broken in these first kilometres. The contact between the piston rings and the cylinder wall of the engine is the main focus of breaking in an engine. There are no set instructions on breaking in an engine. Here are a few things you should avoid:

  • Avoid full throttle
  • Avoid going on high RPMs (Red line)
  • Don’t use cruise control
  • Avoid short distance travel
  • Avoid Towing

  • The first picture is of motorbike engines. V-twins, Harley Davidson style, not car engines. If I want to watch videos by engineering explained, I’ll go to their youtube page and see them for myself.

    Besides, I asked Suzuki and Honda showroom representatives about this when I was looking for a bike. Both said that the engines come ready to ride from the factory. Only break in newly rebuilt engines.
