I picked up my new tc yesterday afternoon.
I live approximately 150 miles from the dealer, so I got a pretty good first ride.

I was nervous driving so far on a brand new engine, but the dealer assured me that I would be OK if I followed a couple simple rules.....

1)5mph every 5 minutes...
Vary your speed whenever possible by 5mph every 5 minutes or so for the first 500 miles. Don't stay at any constant speed for too long, because the engine becomes accustomed to that driving speed.

2)Always keep your engine at 3000rpm or higher.....
Whenever possible, don't let your engine lag at lower rpm's.
Try to avoid bumper to bumper traffic/stop & go driving.

Take it easy folks

Congrats on the new car and welcome to the site! Yesterday was a beautiful day here in the Midwest. Same for today. Actually just got home from a very indulgent ride. Couldn't help cruising around with the roof open.

Welcome to the site. Brand new engines aren't such a big deal, and the instructions you got go way beyond what Scion recommends. Read your owners manual, it details exactly what they expect, and there's a wealth of useful information in the books.
