I wanted to say thanks to everyone keeping this forum alive and well-informed. After three months of (mostly) lurking, researching, and agonizing, I finally put down a deposit on a new Volvo. I'll be saying goodbye to my 2004 Subaru Forester.

2016 XC60 T6 R-Design Platinum
Osmium Grey
BLIS, Heated Front Seats

I'll post pics when I get her home.

I can't find a break-in period thread. Any recommendations, or is there something I'm missing?

This seems like it could get very opinionated very fast. They don't build cars like they used to, I am well aware of that. Still, it's a bit surprising there are no early initial fluid changes, nothing in the owner's manual, about a break-in period, etc.

As you said that can get varying opinion on this.

I noticed the same thing, when we picked our vehicle up for delivery I inquired. The service manager said that there is no formal break in period required (2015 t6). They said that it would be a good idea to obviously not drive the crap out of it right away (keep revs below 3,000 rpm etc) and that a fluid change at 8,000 km's (normal service interval is 16,000) wouldn't hurt. But they also pointed out that driving it hard to begin with shouldn't have any adverse affects.

They said something about the engines being already broken in from the factory.

I know other manufactures that have very specific break in procedures (like subaru, X amount of mileage below X amount of RPM's (no cruise control usage) etc..).
