It will be fine. Don't fret so much and enjoy the car.

There was this concept I heard about occasional outbursts during run in time. This can count as an occasional outburst. They say that once in a while taking the car up to such speeds is needed but it should be done like twice or thrice during that period. Nowadays nobody cares about the whole run in and all that but its good to be on the safe side and not push it. I personally dont cross 80kmph to 90kmph when driving inside Kerala because I feel thats the maximum speed our roads can afford even though our cars could do so much more. Tell your friend there is nothing to worry. God Speed

Re: ARTICLE: How to Run-In your new car

Hi all,
I brought home the Nexon XM Petrol variant last week.
As per the clear direction of many seniors here, I was diligently reading the owner's manual and came across this regarding the running-in of the vehicle. As you can see in Pic 1 (page 116), it says 'Do not exceed following speeds', but there is no table below this. Just a blank page.

Could it be they want us to refer to the table published in the previous page? (Pic 2, page 115)

Thanks for your time!
