    Break In Period?

    I just got the 09 Hatch, and was curious what you guys recommend for a break in period. I've been told anywhere from 500-1500 miles, and have also heard these cars are good to go from the factory. I'm playing it safe and taking it easy till 1500 miles, but i was just curious what all you guys had to say.

    there is no poll needed.

    whatever your manual in your glovebox says, is the break in period you need to follow.

    Don't be like those tools on youtube that say, " I just got this car and I'm gonna race my buddy in his Mustang and see who wins...."

    That's a good way to Break it in!
