if you're engine hasn't heated up, yeah it can hurt. as long as it's not constant, it shouldn't shorten the life by that much. btw, i have 14,112 on my car (bought at 12,500). i red-line probably more than i should.
i have 32000 and i rarely pass 5k rpm when i drive hard but i have redlined a couple times, maybe 12 in 10000 miles and when i do its just to the redline never past it, no problems at all with the engine just my maf sensor and tsb belt tensioner. my only real problems is with my car being too damn low
