If you follow the manual, you should never have a problem. I always have and never a problem. Then again, my brother goes WOT as he leaves the dealer and has never had a problem. However, he only keeps the car for 1-2 years.

I've heard mix reviews on this all the time. Some people say do the proper break in with varying speeds/RPMs etc. Then some people say drive it how you are going to be driving the car. With everyone saying they never had any problems. I read that 1 guy has driven his car how he was going to be driving it with the past 6 cars he's own with no issues on any of them. I've even heard to do the break-in up until 100 miles and then drive it how you want after that.

Me I just do the regular break in until I changed the oil then drive it how ever I want. But this is my 2nd new car so I don't have much info other than that to input.
