+1 but on 100,000 miles.

First car was an 86 Mustang with the 2.3. Had 2 throttle positions, Idle and WOT. Going up a hill was whatever gear (4 speed stick) and whatever RPM - usually 4-5k. Sent it to the boneyard at 175k because the body was shot. The engine still started first thing and used little oil and had no smoke.

If a 1970's vintage 4 banger can survive that I'd think a modern engine would have no problem going the distance.

As sad as it is, I can't hit "redline" anymore (silly electric cars, ha). However, when I had my Marauder it saw redline at least 2-3 times a day. With the built trans and shift kit, the 1-2 shift would chirp the tires and it was ohhh so much fun!

225k miles and it didn't use a drop in between 5k changes. That 4.6 DOHC really loved to wind out, and sounded amazing doing it with a CAI and the rear cats deleted.

Reciprocating mass and multiple daily redline's. It would be interesting to see the wrist pin wear and piston scuff marks after 150k miles. I had a Toyota rice-mobile pass me on the highway 16/I-5 interchange a few years back. Sounded like a formula one car as he passed me. I ran over half a crankshaft with a couple still connected pistons about a mile later. The kid was in the breakdown lane with fire billowing out from under the front of the car. I was glad to be at the front of a future traffic jam for a change.

The motorcycles, the sports car, and the sports coupe, all see redline at least once when taken out for a spin. But only after the drivetrain and tires are up to temp. The truck, the old SUV, and the old car, not so much. The wifes SUV, occasionally.

I don't necessarily make a habit of it, but at the same time I'm not afraid to wind things out to the redline on any of my vehicles occasionally.

On the MG, it's practically mandatory in some circumstances. BTW, it has somewhere around 100K on it, but between a non-working speedo/odo when I got it 4 years ago that was showing 87K and who knows what's happened in the past 50 years, it's hard to say if that's "real" or not. It's showing signs of ring wear(more blow-by than I'd like and lower than expected compression), and the hot oil pressure is around 40 psi idle/50psi cruising. I'm planning on a full rebuild(bore, grind the crank, bearings, pistons/rings, a cam, and anything else that needs attention) this winter on a parts short block I have, so once it's properly broken in I'll not be afraid to again flog it every once and a while. Funny enough, between the restored compression and the cam I'm planning on, it SHOULD have enough power that I won't need to beat on it as hard.

I prefer to keep things 500rpms south of redline for safety sake, but routinely rev my car out to about 7,000rpms. Any engines with oil pressure regulated VVT systems should be revved out and driven at the RPM's where those systems are active every few weeks in order to keep everything lubricated and working correctly.

My 911 had 177k miles when I sold it and it saw the redline multiple times a day... and usually over 100mph at least once.

Didn't consume a drop, and if I was creating additional wear it wasn't apparent.

Everyday with my Sonata.

My Jeep, while certainly not fast at all, has pretty good torque with the inline-6, so I don't redline it all that much. But I'm not afraid to.

200k on my jag x-type. I redline it all the time. Just about every drive. It’s a tiny, underpowered 2.5L V6 and it’s outlasted other x-type owners who don’t change the oil as regularly.

No however with a weak engined car like CrossTrek I could see it happened more often.

It’s not as stressful to engine as much as it it to the entire driveline, joints, mounts, bushing etc.
