"Break-in period for the first 1000 miles
Don't race the engine, keep RPMs under 4,000 for the most part and vary the speeds with normal city and highway driving.
The first oil change is required at 6000 miles or 6 months. Its recommended to check it every few months "

The owners manual will provide the info you need on break-in. Most new cars suggest a similar break-in period.

My Vehicle: 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek 5MT

From the 2016 Crosstrek owner's manual

Engine break-in, page 8-2
New vehicle break-in driving - the first 1,000 miles (1,600 km)

The performance and long life of your vehicle are dependent on how you handle and care for your vehicle while it is new. Follow these instructions during the first 1,000 miles (1,600 km):
  • Do not race the engine. And do not allow the engine speed to exceed 4,000 rpm except in an emergency.
  • Do not drive at one constant engine or vehicle speed for a long time, either fast or slow.
  • Avoid starting suddenly and rapid acceleration, except in an emergency.
  • Avoid hard braking, except in an emergency.

The same break-in procedures should be applied to an overhauled engine, newly mounted engine or when brake pads or brake linings are replaced with new ones.

Don't forget to initiate the brake and parking brake break-in procedure

Breaking-in of new pads and linings, page 11-20
When replacing the brake pad or lining, use only genuine SUBARU parts. After replacement, the new parts must be broken in as follows:

Brake pad and lining
While maintaining a speed of 30 to 40 mph (50 to 65 km/h), step on the brake pedal lightly. Repeat this five or more times.

Parking brake lining
  1. Drive the vehicle at a speed of approximately 22 mph (35 km/h)
  2. With the parking brake release button pushed in, pull the parking brake lever SLOWLY and GENTLY (pulling with a force of approximately 33.7 lbf [150 N, 15.3 kgf]).
  3. Drive the vehicle for approximately 220 yards (200 meters) in this condition.
  4. Wait 5 to 10 minutes for the parking brake to cool down. Repeat this procedure.
  5. Check the parking brake stroke. If the parking brake stroke is out of the specified range, adjust it by turning the adjusting nut located on the parking brake lever.

    Parking brake stroke:
    7-8 notches / 45 lbf (200 N, 20.4 kgf)
