Just got a new 2012 Golf TDI, 6-speed manual transmission with 280 miles and I am so confused about breaking in the engine. It seems to run the gamut of there is no break in period to very specific instructions. My questions are the following:
-What is the max speed I should drive the first 1,000 miles? 2,000-5,000 miles?
-people have said fluctuate the RPMs, don’t maintain the same RPM for long periods. What is the optimal time to stay at one RPM?
-Is it bad for the engine to drive at 2 RPMs at 40mph?
Apologies in advance for these inane questions.
Thanks for your help!
