I just ordered an 09 EX, AWD, MT in polished metal metalic. Out the door cost is 21,371 except for DMV costs. Should this vehicle be operated in any specific way for the first 500 miles? Is there a break in period? I am not sure the dealer will be able to find it in that color. He was asking me about my second choice color. I told him I didn't have one.
Break in period you should not use the cruise control - this would cause the engine to run at a specific RPM for a prolonged period of time. During break in you should vary your RPMs to allow the seals to seat themselves. Do this for the first 600 miles, 1000 miles to be safe.
