Engine Break-in for Towing

2326 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  liangstone
Just wanted to share... The User Guide says there isn't a break in period... but the Owner's manual says this about a break in period FOR TOWING:

-- Do not tow a trailer at all during the first 500 miles (805 km) the new vehicle is driven. The engine, axle or other parts could be damaged.
-- Then, during the first 500 miles (805 km) that a trailer is towed, do not drive over 50 mph (80 km/h) and do not make starts at full throttle. This helps the engine and other parts of the vehicle wear in at the heavier loads.

Pretty sad for me, as I am on 150 Miles and I was going to grab family at the airport and was going to take a trailer with me to put the luggage in.

We have a family trip planning to use the new car (which hasn't arrived yet :)), I am thinking of using the hitch basket for luggage. Is this a concern for the new car? Can any expert help with it? Thanks.
