Running-in notes

The first 1500 km

New brake pads and brake discs only reach their optimal braking effect after a few hundred kilometres. Until then, compensate for this by applying greater force to the brake pedal.

For the service life and economy of your vehicle it is crucial that you run the engine in with due care.

  • You should therefore protect the engine for the first 1500 km by driving at varying vehicle and engine speeds.

  • Avoid overstraining the vehicle and high engine speeds during this period, e.g. driving at full throttle. Do not exceed mbsymb6_inv_00d8.png of the maximum speed for each gear.

  • Change gear in good time.

  • Do not change down a gear manually in order to brake.

  • On vehicles with an automatic transmission, try to avoid depressing the accelerator pedal beyond the point of resistance (kickdown).

  • On vehicles with an automatic transmission, the shift ranges 3, 2 or 1 should only be engaged when driving slowly, e.g. when driving in mountainous terrain.

After 1500 km, you may gradually accelerate the vehicle to full road and engine speeds.

You should also observe these notes on running-in if the engine or parts of the drive train on your vehicle have been replaced.
