2015 MX-5 break in recommendations

Postby RobertR488 » Wed Jan 21, 2015 10:44 am

I've never owned any new car & would like the Mazda experts' suggestions on how I can prolong its' life. I'm a Mercedes mechanic and hope to never visit the dealer again. Thanks in advance.

Like it says in the Mazda manual, just drive it normal, no special break-in. Just the usual recommendations including avoid the redline the first 500 or so miles, avoid same speed for long freeway drives during those miles, avoid racing the motor when cold....but don't let it sit running in the driveway until it warms up, just drive normal for the first 500 or so miles.

from page 4-6 in the owners manual:

No special break-in is necessary, but a few precautions in the first 1,000 km (600 miles) may add to the performance, economy, and life of your Mazda.
- Do not race the engine.
- Do not maintain one constant speed, either slow or fast, for a long period of time.
- Do not drive constantly at full-throttle or high engine rpm for extended periods of time.
- Avoid unnecessary hard stops.
- Avoid full-throttle starts.

I read the owner's manual and viewed the app too. Do you recommend changing the engine oil or any other lubricants prior to the recommended service interval?
