What is the initial KMs in which i need to drive carefully after purchasing the car so that the engine will settle in?Since most cars are having 15,000 service interval,i think that driving carefully without revving the engine much till 15000 kms will be a tedious task.Will the first 100KM carefull driving will be ok??

Even i wanted to know about this. Am planning to take a diesel hatch.Will this initial KMs run change for diesel and petrol vehicles?Or its general for all vehicles??I have asked the showroom people and they are telling,all these were for earlier engines.Nowadays there is no problems and we can drive anyway we want after buying a new car.Is this true?

Now a days there is no such problems. You can drive new car with full load but it is recommended that you won't go beyond 70-80 kmph speed for first 1000 km.

It would be ideal to run at around 60 to 80 initially say for 1000KM or so and later on can be driven as convenient.
