Follow the owner's manual break-in recommendations (varying speed, no sudden starts or stops). It will pay-off in the long run.

I think the biggest thing is the whole "vary your speeds". Don't use cruise control on the hwy for like the first 500mi. Speed up & slow down... downshift (if you have a manual) etc. No worries.
