    Just got 09 Wagon

    Hey guys,

    I bought a new 09 white wrx wagon about two weeks ago and I gotta tell ya its the best car Ive driven even thou I didnt break my 1st thousand miles yet so Im not using my baby even to a third of what it can do...
    So I had a question about break in period... I already got 700 miles on it and manual says that you should break in smoothly during first 1000 but Ive been talkin to a few ppl n some told me that its better to wait n ride smoothly till 2000 or even 3000 miles because it would be better for turbo in the long run...
    So I was seeking help from experts here n ppl who really drive em n can help me out here

    Thanks in advance

    p.s. pix r comin up once I finish my exam tmr

    welcome to the club!

    definitely follow your break in period that is listed in your owners manual.

    i dont know if it is the same for the newer models, but for my 06 the break in was to keep it under 4k RPM's for the first thousand miles & vary your speeds

    desiree

    Hi welcome to the club, and Congrats on the WRX!
    When I bought my car I was told the same thing to stay under 4k rpms for the first 1000 miles.Which I did, I am so glad to see it's the truth.

    At the time I wasn't sure if the Salesman was kidding since it was my first new WRX.
