    Bought mine in Arizona and had to drive it home to Southern California.

    It was at highway speeds for a while.

    I even used cruise control at one point :eek:

    I keep waiting for it to blow up any minute, but it just keeps going :(

    One of the reasons I ask this question is that my brother had a new 2005 Toyota Celica with the 1zz-fe engine 4 banger and he did drive it hard right off the lot. Then at about 17K it needed rings it was covered under warranty but even the mechanic told him he burnt the rings during break in. I know we have come a long way since then but I am sure it could still be possible to do that in the 4.0....

    I would think if you drive things reasonably in the first place and you drive this thing reasonably off the lot, you'll be fine.

    I would avoid towing, stomping on the gas, high rpms and those sorts of common sense things.

    Other than that, I'm fine with just driving it like you normally would off the lot.........and I did!

    To be determined
    I had my 2015 Tacoma from new until 30k and never once even caught a wheel. Took good care of the clutch in that 6spd

    There's something to them telling you that with any motorized thing in my opinion. "They" know what their talking about or they wouldn't tell you to do it...Again just my .02 I'm no mechanic.
