2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8: Engine Break-in

May 22, 2012

Our 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 takes a different approach to engine break-in than our Subaru Impreza. There are two obvious differences. One, the Subie wants us moderate on the pedal for the first 1,000 miles. The Jeep asks for half that time. And two, Subaru warns us to "avoid rapid acceleration" while the Jeep recommends "brief full-throttle acceleration" during the break-in.

There you go.
