Jeep Liberty Engine Break IN

Hello. Newbie to this forum.

I just signed a lease for a new 2010 Liberty ! WAHOOOOOOO!

I am very excited! BUT, I was wondering what everyone recommends for proper engine break in.

Should I drive a certain MPH for a certain # of miles?

Thanks!! Rob

This is what the manual says,moderate driving for the first 300 miles,then after the initial 60 miles, speeds of 50-55 are desirable.After 300 miles-while cruising,brief full throttle within speed limits contributes to good break-in.I would recommend reading your manual because there is lot of things on these Liberty and may help you later.

Welcome to Jeep Forum casadelrob. Just like with richd said my manual said the same. I basically kept my speeds down below 60 and the RPMs down as low as possible. I heard that the newer engines on vehicles now a days don't need "Breaking In"as much as the older ones do.
