    Welcome to the forum sooner.

    Taken from the manual...

    ENGINE BREAK-IN RECOMMENDATIONS
    A long break-in period is not required for the engine and
    drivetrain (transmission and axle) in your vehicle.
    Drive moderately during the first 300 miles (500 km).
    After the initial 60 miles (100 km), speeds up to 50 or
    55 mph (80 or 90 km/h) are desirable.
    While cruising, brief full-throttle acceleration within the
    limits of local traffic laws, contributes to a good break-in.
    Wide-open throttle acceleration in low gear can be detri-
    mental and should be avoided.

    The CD/DVD that came with my 2016 was virtually worthless. It would check the version of Adobe Reader, which was the latest version, and if it didn't find what IT wanted, it would just EXIT.

    BUT, I get your drift.

    I think it might also require Internet Exploder.
