i didn't flash until i was at 1200 miles...i hope that is ok. thamks for the info.New Car Break-in period:
1000 miles: Drive calmly for the first 1,000 miles.
Always note the blue 'cold engine' light on the dashboard- it means the engine is cold and drive accordingly.
Avoid hard starts and stops.
Avoid over-revving the engine, try to keep RPMs under 4000.
Vary your speeds over the full range of city and highway driving
Don't use cruise control much, if at all.
City and freeway driving is fine because that will vary the speeds
1st oil change 4 cylinder models 7,500 miles, turbo and 6 cylinder 3 months or 3,000 miles. Note It is recommended to do the first oil change on all models at 3mos/3,000 miles.
Generic from: Subaru maintenance schedules and new car break-in period- 2010
I think the owners manual has something like 1500 miles and the first oil change on turbo is 3750 miles or 3 months (whichever is first)
