First time car buyer looking for advice
I finally bought my first car and purchased a 2011 Jeep Compass, it's coming in 4 to 6 weeks...but...before it gets here, I wanted to make sure I get everything ready for it to last.
First of all, based on some advice here, I got floor mats for it. Is there anything else I need to get for it, so it's ready to deal with Canadian winters here? (I know, I know...it's not winter anymore...but I might as well get the interior prepped to deal with the harshest season)
Also, do I need to "break-in" the car? A couple friends told me that I shouldn't take it on the highway nor drive past 60 kph until I've gone the first 1000 km. Is that true? Also that I should do an initial oil change at 20 KM?
I was thinking of doing the whole oil, lube and filter change every 5000 km. Are there any other maintenance things I should do? what frequency should I do them?
If you can please provide some info, it'll be greatly appreciated! Thank you very much!!!
