In this article we give our opinion about the procedure of taxiing the vehicle. Something that many people do not take very seriously and that turns out to be very important.

Many people, when purchasing a new vehicle, often doubt the effectiveness of the procedure of taxiing the vehicle (what is commonly called the warranty). This is described in the vehicle manual and many people ignore it, others believe that it is to validate the "guarantee" and it really is not quite so.
Many will wonder what is the "shooting of the vehicle" ?. Well it is the procedure that must be done to a new vehicle or a newly made engine during the first 2000 or 3000 kilometers.
The procedure usually consists of the following:
• With the car cold do not give sudden accelerations.
• Do not drive faster than 100 km / h or 110 km / h if it is not necessary.
• Avoid sudden braking and accelerate progressively.
• Regularly controls the level of liquids (brake chain, engine oil and air from rubbers).
• Avoid abrupt changes in engine speed.
People question it a lot today because the processes of manufacturing a vehicle have changed and evolved enough, so that, in general, the brands ensure that any customer who has just purchased a new vehicle, can do a completely normal use of it.
Even so, what they do not name is that the behavior of the engine in the future will depend, in addition to its efficiency and good functioning, on the use we make of it; that is, it is very likely that you will be able to give your vehicle a longer life by following the procedure of "taxiing the vehicle"
Something very important to add to the subject, is that although many parts of the car are assembled by robots (engine more than anything) to the end, parts such as trunnions, body adjustment screws, harness circuit cables; among others, they are armed by people and therefore human error is present.
For this reason, the filming of the vehicle is important as it ensures that if a part is not properly adjusted, limits the possible damages that may be generated (remember the warranty agreements, "The car is repaired, it is not changed by another") and even significantly improves the safety of the occupants of the vehicle in this important period that vehicle manufacturers call the post test.
Anyway, do not hesitate to seek several opinions to contrast them and good to form a clear opinion on whether or not to perform this procedure. Also if it's good ... it costs nothing, why not do it?
Direction play, by itself, it is customary to have a small metal noise when you turn the steering on these cars in the morning, then it is removed. Do not worry it's normal.
For example in the oil filter and oil plugs. The orinoco has two, one hexagonal key and one allen key, so very aware of that (I happen to mine).
Automatic adjustment of engine operating mode. When the vehicle is off for more than 12 hours and turn it on, the computer is responsible for adjusting and measuring the engine sensors, which is why in the mornings the minimum RPM drops below normal. That's the last test, car idle speed adjustment. Later I will explain why this procedure.
Air pressure of the rubbers. Very important this, due to the conditions in which they deliver these cars (they are not reviewed by anyone) where they have been stored for a long time.
