vehicle maintenance repairs near bc canadaYou have to break-in shoes and gloves, but how about your car? It turns out that this applies to new vehicles, too, but what is involved?

Break-in periods for cars vary, but in general, the first 1,600 km (1,000 miles) or so is the range in which both you will get accustomed to the vehicle, and it will do the same for you. This duration is often when automated systems—like parking assist or driver attention-assurance features—learn how you operate behind the wheel.

For cargo hauling, manufacturers often recommend during break-in periods that you should avoid pulling large trailers or putting heavy items in roof racks. In addition, some makers may advise practices like refraining from long idling times (and this is good to do in general).

No matter if your car is brand-new or well-worn, contact us at Willowbrook Chrysler today for a checkup to keep it in top shape.
