Volkswagen Tiguan Owners Manual: Break-in period

Read and follow the introductory information and safety information firstIntroduction to the subject 

Note applicable requirements for breaking in new parts.

Breaking in a new engine

A new engine must be carefully broken in during the first 1000 miles (1600 kilometers). During the first few hours of driving, the engine's internal friction is higher than later when all moving parts have been broken in.

Engine life is influenced by how you drive the vehicle for the first 1000 miles (1600 km). Even afterwards, driving at moderate engine speeds, especially when the engine is cold, will tend to reduce engine wear and help the engine to last longer and go farther. But do not drive at an excessively low engine speed, either. Always downshift if the engine is not running smoothly. For the first 600 miles (1000 km):

  • Do not use full throttle.
  • Don't let the engine speed get above 2/3 of the maximum speed.
  • Do not tow a trailer.

From 600 to 1000 miles (1000 to 1600 km): Speed may gradually be increased to maximum permissible road and engine speed.
