Re: No more wk... hi wk2

Looks very good. Does the manual actually say that? That's nuts. With the 8 spd, and high gears, it's not revving much at 75 mph.

Are you sure you read it correctly? I just bought a new Pentastar 200. It said the following:

A long break-in period is not required for the engine and
drivetrain (transmission and axle) in your vehicle.

Drive moderately during the first 300 miles (500 km).
After the initial 60 miles (100 km), speeds up to 50 or
55 mph (80 or 90 km/h) are desirable.

Congrats on the new GC with Lux II, it is great. I think the "drive under 60 for 500 miles" is an old myth. I just wouldn't hammer on it for 500 miles, otherwise drive it like you want. Most of us do and there was a big discussion on this awhile ago.

Re: No more wk... hi wk2

from the owners manual......



ENGINE BREAK-IN RECOMMENDATIONS
A long break-in period is not required for the engine and
drivetrain (transmission and axle) in your vehicle.
Drive moderately during the first 300 miles (500 km).
After the initial 60 miles (100 km), speeds up to 50 or
55 mph (80 or 90 km/h) are desirable.
While cruising, brief full-throttle acceleration within the
limits of local traffic laws contributes to a good break-in.
Wide-open throttle acceleration in low gear can be detrimental
and should be avoided.

Could have just read the manual. Saved us both the hassle. All's good. Nice Jeep.
