The Maunual clearly states the procedure. Most driving up to 4500rpm with an occassional higher RPM. Most times half throttle with occasional more throttle. your dealer basic premise is correct. Dont completely drive it granny style but dont abuse it all the time. I slowly got on it more frequently as i got closer the 1000 miles. Kinda ramped it up as it was breaking in.agent orange said:I'm told you can't go past 4500 for 1000 miles and then my dealer says you can do whatever you want in moderation but just have to varry it up a lot and be "smart" about things
of course the person who said don't past 4500k also got his car at my dealer
so now im confused
do i have to drive totally like grandma for the first 1k or can i hvae a little fun?
The "dont go above 4500" suggestion for 1000 miles is totaly incorrect and would certainly be worse for the car. Go out and drive the thing and have fun with it.
