    Typically first 500 miles they want 2 things .one no rapid starts and do not stay at one speed for a long time. Mind you I have not read the runner manual yet. Anyway just do 70 for Abit, 65, 70.
    I never did and never had a problem

    You can for sure go on the highway. Just vary your speed. For the first 1000 miles I did 10 minutes at 70mph, 10 minutes at 75mph, 10 minutes at 67mph, 10 minutes at 73mph, etc. Probably overkill, but whatever. Just don't set the cruise at 70mph and drive for 3 hours. Even then, it's probably not gonna hurt anything.

    Also, no rapid/hard braking recommended. I also don't like to tow for the first 500 miles. No particular reason. I just don't do it. If you have to, be sure to take it out of overdrive.

    Well, I imagine there are some people that don't follow the rules and they're just fine... :anonymous:

    The manual outlines break in guidelines. No reason not to follow them . IIRC.. no hard braking first 200 miles. No extream speed or extended driving at 1 speed for awhile... no towing for 500... um...

    Its in the manual lol.
