Hi. I am an owner of new wagon r vxi. At times my driver touches 120mph at the 5th gear. Is it ok? Or will it damage or has already damaged my car? As i have mentioned its a new car yet to cross the 1000km mark.

Welcoem to carwale

A new car ideally shouldnt be taken to such high speeds especially in the run in period. However the RPM should be kept varying for a proper run in. So if it was just for a small period there wont be a problem but ask him to follow proper running procedures. Do check your owners manual once
