Breaking in NEW car

good article. I am very sorry I missed oil stuff on 2 of my cars.

I always change the oil at 1000 miles in a new car but I'm going to think about doing it at 20 on the next one.

he got point there, didn't he? that's what I missed. he sorta says that that metal suspension "re-seals back small cracks" but I'd rather have had it out.

Also, really curious if someone did full throttle break in on my Camry.

I know I drove the hell out of my 02 CR-V day 2 after I bought her with 78 miles on ticker, maybe that's why she never took or burnt oil thereafter. I mean - I was going 110mph on her day 5 after purchase. That prolly sealed them rings good.
