Never looked up (or attempted) to look up new car engine break in procedures. The recommendations on the net are all over the page ... which makes me think they are more opinions than anything else. Some say its a thing of the past ... some say its done at the factory now ... others say to change the oil after 50-100 miles, never going above 3000 rpm. And I guess there is some evidence of benefit if you drive it like hell from tbe get-go. How have you guys addressed this?

The 2020 Owners Manual says to avoid downshifting and full throttle accelerations for the first 500 miles. In another section it also mentions no hard braking.

Generally newer vehicles have extra lubrications so do not do an oil change early. I would drive it normal. Don’t race it. Don’t baby it.
