Brand New 2011 wrx 5door
 
I just purchased A 2011 WRX 5 door. This is my first new car and first subaru. I was trying to figure out the best way to break in the vehicle so I do not experience problems down the road. After all the money I spent on the car (money well spent) I want to do it right. I kno I am not suppose to beat the hell out of it and redline it but someone said to not drive the car above 60mph which is hard since I drive the NJ Turnpike to work everyday. Just looking for some advice appreciate the responses

The factory approved break-in procedure is in the owner's manual. So is a lot of other really good information.

And a lot of other people subscribe to the "get on it in short bursts" and don't over heat the rings/cylinder walls. But, the short bursts will still add enough heat to properly seal the rings on the pistons if you do it enough in small doses; like say a on-ramp.
