[quote:047be680ac="jayharley"]Where did you hear about a 60 MPH limit for break in? My owners manual specifically mentions to avoid full-throttle starts and rapid acceleration, avoid hard breaking and NOT to change the oil until the recommended time or milage.

However I cannot find any MPH limit for the break in time. I am keeping mine below 65 anyway, but I don't see any specific mention of this.[/quote:047be680ac]

You are correct. For the first 600 miles, don't drag race the car and for the first 200 miles, just drive and use the brakes normally...first oil change is between 3700 and 4000 miles.
