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.

You should also observe these breakingin notes if the engine or parts of the drive train on your vehicle have been replaced.

Always observe the respective speed limits.
