There’s nothing like driving a new car off the dealer’s lot. That fresh car smell is inside the cabin, and you carefully ease your new ride out, taking care to look both ways on the street before exiting.

You finally reach the freeway ramp or next major street and drop the hammer on the accelerator in happiness. As you speed past the other cars, a thought comes into the back of your mind: “I wonder if I should go slower because it’s a new car...?”

Some people believe that you can’t drive faster than 55 miles per hour during the first 500 to 1,200 miles during the break in period. Is this really right?

Why there is a break in period


The main reason why manufacturers recommended a break in period is to make sure that the piston rings in the engine have a chance to be seated properly in the cylinders.

This is accomplished by making sure that you don’t run the engine for long periods of time during idling or running the car long distances at the same speed, such as going on cruise control on the freeway for extended distances.

If you vary your driving speeds without putting too much stress on the engine, you’ll be just fine. Just make sure to reference your owner’s manual to be certain about your specific car needs.

The reason why a typical break in period lasts between 500 to 1200 miles is because the car engine experts have determined that this is how long it takes for most engines to break in. The variations of the distances are a result of the different driving habits of individuals.

Generally speaking, most car companies say keeping the RPMs below 4500 is a good idea during this time.

What about the 55 MPH rule?


It seems that this advice is old and outdated. During the time when cars were less advanced, this rule was a good one but it persists even until today.

The best general advice is to just drive normally, avoid idling the car engine for long periods of time, and don’t use the cruise control.

And always check your car owner’s manual for specific recommendations or advice.

The proceeds of selling your older car can go to the operations of the charity like giving food or clothing to the family that they supported. So, you are not required to move from one dealer to another for ideal model. This is a rear-wheel drive car, and that means that unlike front-wheel drive cars - which typically can't be used much beyond B class - the MR2 can be upgraded all the way to the top of A - although going into S class is probably a bit much.
