A week til my Prius is here, and..... I'm just curious? I searched for topics but found none. What is the "preferred method of "Breaking In" a new Prius. I know the idea on regular cars, but since the "ICE" on a prius dosen't run all the time, should the tecnique of breaking it in differ? 1: Should you drive pretty hard from the get-go? 2: Should you drive moderately, while nailing it a few times to air it out? 3: Should you baby it, and don't worry about the ICE? I don't want a poll, I want to know how new Prius owners attacked their new cars. I always understood, if you baby a car, it will drive doggish for ever, but if you get on it, it will be a spunkier car. How did "You" break it in.
