The more you look after the engine when it is new, the more satisfied you will be with its performance in the future.

R You should therefore drive at varying vehicle and engine speeds for the first 1,000 miles (1,500 km).

Х Avoid heavy loads, e.g. driving at full throttle, during this period.

Х Change gear in good time, before the tachometer needle is Ô of the way to the red area of the tachometer.

Х Do not manually shift to a lower gear to brake the vehicle.

Х If possible, do not depress the accelerator pedal past the point of resistance (kickdown).

Х Only select shift ranges 3, 2 or 1 when driving slowly, e.g. in mountainous terrain.

After 1,000 miles (1,500 km), you can increase the engine speed gradually and bring the vehicle up to full speed.

Additional breaking-in notes for AMG vehicles:
Х Do not drive faster than 85 mph (140 km/h for the first 1,000 miles (1,500 km)
Х Only allow the engine to reach a maximum engine speed of 4,500 rpm briefly.

Х Change gear in good time.

Х Avoid driving off-road before the differential oil change at 2,000 miles (3,000 km).

Х Ideally, drive for the first 1,000 miles(1,500 km) in drive program C.
