Car Salesman says there is no such thing anymore but articles on the internet suggest a variety of things, using various speeds, bedding in the brakes softly and even an oil change after 1600 kms. Now I'm confused and would appreciate your help please with what I should do?

Hi there,
This could be a thing of the past. However it would depend on the vehicle manufacturer and what they recommend is best for the longevity of their vehicle. Generally you would not take a brand new car and race it on a track, and so they might say the run in period might just be the steps you take in order to get used to the vehicle, its features and how it drives.
