I just bought a new 2001 Nissan Maxima and have a question. I understand that you are supposed to take it easy on a new engine for a break-in period while everything wears smooth together. One person tells me to avoid high RPMs for 5,000 mi., the salesman said to avoid high (over 70) speeds for "a while." The manual is, so far as I see, silent on the issue. What should I do?

Any other suggestions on breaking the car in? Maintenance and such?
All thoughts appreciated. I plan on keeping the car as long as possible, and would like to start out right.

Thanks
