Breaking in Your New Hyundai

During the First 1200 Miles (2000 Km)

No formal "break-in" procedure is required with your new Hyundai. However, you can contribute to the economical operation and durability of your Hyundai by observing the following recommendations during the first 1200 miles (2000 km).

o Don't drive faster than 55 MPH (88 km/ h).

o While driving, keep your engine speed (rpm, or revolutions per minute) between 2,000 rpm and 4,000 rpm.

o Use moderate acceleration. Don't start quickly or depress the accelerator pedal fully.

o For the first 200 miles (300 km), try to avoid hard stops.

o Don't lug the engine (in other words, don't drive so slowly in too high a gear that the engine "bucks"-shift to a lower gear).

o Whether going fast or slow, vary your speed from time to time.

o Don't let the engine idle longer than 3 minutes at one time.

o Don't tow a trailer during the first 1,200 miles (2,000 km) of operation.
