it doesnt need to be broken in. its already been ran when it wasnt in the car. they test it before they put it in the car. they break it in for you. you just need to break it in the way you drive. but it does need to see WOT before 500 miles is on it. seats the rings.

If the engine is already broke in when you get it then it does not need to see wot to seat the rings. Look in your owners manual.

It doesn't hurt to give your car a 1000km or so to break in, no point in putting undo strain on new components. If you are that anxious to beat a car up rent a car for a day and get it out of your system :D

they break it in. they dont beat on it though. they put 2-4 miles on it before it gets to you period, sometime 7-10.

EDIT- the manual also says 3750 between every oil change... :hmmm:

When the cars role off the transports into the shop they have anywhere from 4-14 miles on them. Hyundai wants us "the Hyundai Technician" to put on atleast ten miles before letting it go to the customer. To make sure everything is ok.
