I just got my Genesis Sedan and was wondering what, if any, engine break in techniques to use to get a long lasting engine. The dealership never, in the slightest bit, touched on the subject.

Did anyone have any special break in techniques?
Did you keep the Revs under a certain limit for a certain amount of miles?
Is there a maximum top speed you went before a certain amount of miles?
When did you first really open up the car - how many miles?

I keep my revs down and do as clean shifts as possible, making sure not to over rev.

I will be babying the engine for the first 5 or 6 tanks of gas then I'll probably start driving it more and more harder, IE: higher revs off launch and shift points from time to time

Don't see any reason to keep it under a certain speed either, as long as you aren't puttin the engine at WOT.

I recommend a call to your service tech.

Long story short. Just drive it. No long periods of time and a steady r.p.m. Max of 70 m.p.h. but again don't stay at one speed for more than 10-15 min. No full throttle accellerations until over 2500 mi.

Enjoy.

Great advice it deserves to be said again.

Drive it normal .... if you think you are driving it too hard and you are being harder on it then you should, then you are!!!

Just baby it the first few thousand kilometers/miles. As long as all the seals seat properly then you're fine. Once the seals have seated properly then have as much fun as you want.
