My owner's manual recommends changing brake fluid at 3 years, regardless of mileage. This is the best advice you will get on a break in for modern engines. That being said, flooring it once is not going to harm anything on a measurable scale. I just crossed that mark a few months ago. My next-door neighbor is a mechanic. I should probably get some of those testers, but. Hello everyone!

Just got mine a few months ago. New vehicles are kind of like new shoes…they need to be broken in. He's been our mechanic for years, he does great work, and I definitely consider him trustworthy. I think it depends a lot on where you live as well. Don’t worry about it. I didn’t know much about the break in period. In the midwest blowing a rusted out brake line after 15 years usually makes you change the fluid haha.

High levels of copper in the fluid is a sign of brake line breakdown from the brazing. I intend to have this car for 10 plus years since my previous Honda lasted that long with minimal issues before it was given to family. All Things Civic Related.

I had obsessed about this car for months and months and lived frugally so I can comfortably afford it. I wouldn't worry much. If your fluid is in that condition in such a short period of time, you've got some other issues there. I am not trying to startle you just inform you as you have a right to know. Lol, hahahahah oh yeah that sounds perfect :-). I asked him if he had a pressure bleeder that I could borrow.

I drive a 2015 Honda Civic, but this is intended more as a general question. Fluid is cheap and changing it requires no special tools or equipment. Why would Honda omit this for their top model ride? The owners manual only says don’t rev excessive for the first 600 miles. Some of these engines aren’t experiencing this issue as heavy as others and like I said 2019 is supposed to be all fixed up. Drive it sensibly.

I’ve regularly broken in engines by both regular driving, driving easy, and beating hard on it. When I finally did I had one tiny air bubble.

Don’t sweat it too much.

Hard to say.

If you can see the fluid is light and clean. I change it every couple years. this is my new proud and joy and want to treat it the best I can. On another more serious note however, the 1.5T engines in the civics, the earth dreams turbo, have a fairly serious issue with fuel getting into the oil and cause too high amounts of oil dilution.

I didn’t know highway driving was “bad” until later. So what do you guys say? If it's the color of iced tea, let it ride. They are partly correct as DI engines like this are a bit more susceptible to oil dilution, however, these engines are experiencing oil dilution on a whole other level and it’s causing harm to your engine. I've heard 1000 miles is the norm for most cars so I'd stick with that. And had you been informed that this is something to do with every new car?

New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be cast, Looks like you're using new Reddit on an old browser. Do what you want. I’ve never bothered with that, I wouldn’t worry about it. We finally drove the car to the junkyard with more than 500k on the odometer after 15 years (the rust did that poor car in). I also floored mine once too and it’s still fine. Back in the 80's we saw a lot of rust and debris problems in calipers and pistons, and I rebuilt a whole lot of calipers.

I was worried about mine too. I drive a 2015 Honda Civic, but this is intended more as a general question. I was just told by the sales guy to “take it easy on the brakes for the first 200 miles” ..... well I drove three hours to get the car so I ended up straight on the highway with it. Keep tabs on the oil level while breaking it in, but run the oil down to 10% or less life remaining on the dash indicator before changing it. Press J to jump to the feed.

But with that said, I work in a dealership and we do regularly service brake fluid with a flush machine. Toyota, Honda, Mazda, and Subaru will definitely get you to 150K+ and should last to 200K. The heat from braking slowly wears out the fluid and gives it different properties. There is mention in my 2012 Civic EX though...600 miles. I usually do it every time i need pads. Most of the time it probably makes no difference, and I only recommend it myself when I can see that the fluid in the master is visibly discolored. I've heard that for the first 500 miles you are not really supposed to drive at a constant engine speed (RPM) and you shouldn't abuse it for the first either. It wouldn’t hurt to keep an eye on it tho just to be safe. Oil dilution can wear engine parts at an accelerated rate and cause it to fail far sooner than it normally would. Any thoughts on what sort of break in I should do if any? In all seriousness though, they say most engines come broken in from the factory already, but I still babied mine the first 1000 miles. Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. Hyundai and Kia are reliable but I honestly couldn’t tell you at what mileage point they stop becoming reliable.

The boiling points have also increased, which leads me to think that the fluid itself has been improved from what it was.

It’s funny, around 10-12 years ago this started changing from “if you have a problem change it” to “change it every 2-3 years or you’re going to get air in the brake lines and die” My nose smells that it’s more of a liability thing.

Maybe take it easy the first thousand miles. He put his hand on my shoulder, and said "bless your heart kid, I've been doing this for 15 years, and you're the first person I've ever seen that's actually listened to that". I picked mine up on Friday, Yesterday I took it for a long highway drive (some 800 miles) and every half hour or so I would rev the piss out of her by down shifting and accelerating to about 6.5K rpm then let off the gas and let engine braking do it's thing.
