Post Quick question regarding breaking in a new Toyota...

My GF just got a new Toyota Corolla and it says not to go above 55MPH. In the RS manual it says not to go over 4000 rpm but it doesn't mention speed. Does she need to worry about not going over 55 as long as she's not in 3rd?

Thanks!

Geoff

Dude..thats just cold hearted.

I would say, not to keep it going 55mph for extended periods of time, and keep the RPM's fairly reasonable(3k-ish)

I hope she like's it

Her main concern is that she has to drive about 800 miles next week and she's curious if she keeps it at reasonable RPMs (60-70mph) since a lot of the driving is interstate.

Thanks!

I seem to remember that when engines are new, you shouldnt run them at a constant speed/RPM for extended periods of time.....I would try to be aware of that on the first highway trip.

Follow the Toyota owner's manual. All not engines are the same. I seem to remember that a Mercedes CLK does not have any break-in period because the engines are so well made. The break-in period on a 99 Passat was only 500 miles. The break-in period on the Subaru Outback VDC is 1000 miles. You can't use the owner's manual for a Subaru to break-in another brand's car.

55 mph is a bit unrealistic these days, tell her to use 5th and try to stay under 4000 or 3500 rpm's. But also don't go under 2000 or uphill 2200 w/o downshifting. Don't use cruise, keep the speed varying slightly. She'll be broken in by the end of the week. The car, not her.
