CAN I USE THE CRUISE CONTROL IN THE FIRST 600 MILES OF MY NEW CAR

I recently bought a 2011 Honda CR-V 4WD. Today I heard you should not use cruise control within the first 600 miles. Unfortunately I used it for 20 miles one-way and 20 miles back on the freeway, all while under 200 miles. Did I do something to NOT mak
Who told you such thing and for what reason-is it in the owner's manual-if not ignore it

The Honda dealership. I have also seen this same suggestion on the Internet. I believe they said it's not good to keep a brand new car at the same RPMs for a steady period of time, at least while you're "breaking it in"? If I went 20 miles there and 20 miles back using cruise control, all while under 200 miles, that's exactly what I did.

If your mileage is correct-the engine needs time to break-in, for me the C/C has nothing to do with it-Good Luck

Like I said, my concern is if I used the cruise control that early in the car's life (under 200 miles), will it not perform or last like it should? Can it cause any damage like this? It's a 2011 CRV 4WD LX.
