Default New car mileage concern...

I'm dumping three cars and buying three new Honda's, a Pilot, CR-v and a HR-v. It is difficult to find three just like we want. My wife and I are very OCD about things and have horrible thoughts of how our brand news cars may have been driven if they have more than say, 2 to 20 miles on them. For example if the dealer has to go get one for us 100 miles away, or one was test driven a bit. I worry about how the engine was treated during the initial "break-in" period. I mean can you really damage engine longevity by punching it a few times with less than 1500 miles on it?

welcome to the forum. No the break in on the newer cars makes no difference. when I purchased my 85 Nissan, I was told to keep it under 65mph for the first 100 miles. I did and before I sold it, it had 375k and no oil burn or bypass. on my 02 civic, first day I drove it with 2 miles got it up to 100 miles, at 220k I gave it to my son, no oil burn or engine problems from oil change to oil change at each 5k miles. my 07 Honda I drove this car as I would daily, 80 mph going down hill on the I-15 with traffic, no problems to date with 280k. new break in should be as you would drive daily. you should go pick your new car up, the dealer/sales man should tell you all about the features of your new ride. enjoy your new rides. we have an hr-v, great car. lots of enjoyment, and wife is not a slow driver.
