Default Break in period

I got my SF 2.0T AWD a week ago and so far it's been great. I see in the owners manual that they recommend breaking in the engine for the first 1,000 km by staying below 4,000 RPM.
At first blush this makes sense but it seems as though I'm kind of babying it.
Any opposing views?
Thanks.

Not really. If you are using a brand new car, all the parts will be working together for the first time so you want to minimize the stress on these parts until the broken in period.

Even though most will say that newer engines do not need to be broken in, it is still best to be easy on it for the first 1000 km. Try not to keep a constant RPM keep it below 4000.

to be correct you do not want to have a constant rpm. You want to have the rpms range from 1000 to 4000. You do not want to keep it at the same rpm as that will not allow the parts to seat as they are intended. I know everyone has there way of breaking in an engine but the engine needs to go through the rpm range and you will have the best performance after that. Race teams do it with there cars when they break in a new engine.
