  1. Break-in period not found in the manual.

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V

We've had a bit of a cold snap recently, but it still seems kind of low- I'm very aware (almost...
  6. Break In Period

    Maintenance and Service
    Now I know that nowadays you don't strictly have to "break in" a new car with varying speeds, etc. But is it okay to just drive as you would normally? I mean cruise control on 70 for an hour or whatever... Any special thoughts of some things to do to promote long life and health of my new...
