the most common thing people do is drive it hard when it's cold.... accelerating quickly is harder on the tranny than a slow even acceleration since it's forcing the parts together and to mesh more quickly but it's not that big of a deal as long as you don't do it all the time.... towing stuff is harder on it, running pedal to the floor then brake to the floor from stoplight to stoplight isn't going to do it any favors either but all in all it's really designed for people to drive normally, a nice constant acceleration from one point to the next....
