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.
