    hi guys
    i want to know wether it is true or not. Don't drive your new car on toll road with high speed, cause it will make your car not long lasting. is that true? so what speed it will be recommended? for how long? thanks

    Check the manual of your car for advice about the "break-in period."

    It's not as important as it used to be, but some components (e.g. brakes) still need some time to "wear in" a bit before they work properly.

    Of course, if you throw your car away every three years, it doesn't matter as much as it does when you keep it for 20 years.

    See for example: http://www.popularmechanics.com/cars/how-to/saturday-mechanic-blog/how-to-break-in-a-new-car
