Break-in needed?

I read the post by westcoastguy indicating that his 2011 Compass already had 500km when he recieved it from the manufacturer. So, that got me thinking, are the cars already broken-in when you get it? How many kilometers/miles did your car have when you got it?

Hmmm I think you misread my post, I said that I had put those km on it myself
The vehicle had 14 km on it when I picked it up.

HAHA!! OK, I totally missed that. I guess I'll need to do a break-in of the vehicle. How has it been for you? Any issues so far?

Absolutely none, other then the iPhone issue the vehicle itself has been perfect. Over 700 km now. Kept it under 90km the first 250 and lots of freeway since then with speeds of 120-130.
I'm switching to synthetic after the first two Dino oil changes.
The vehicle emits a strong burning rubber smell the first couple hundred km, it is normal so don't sweat it unless it never stops
