Default Advice for Commuter with new Hyundai

I appreciate this forum. I recently purchased a new Veloster. I live about 45 miles from my work (90 miles roundtrip) and work five days a week. I thought the gas mileage improvement from my large car would be an incentive to buy.
Now that I have the Veloster, I hate to put it on the interstate and run up those miles. It is a fun car to drive, and it does well with gas. But I guess I want to pamper and save it. I have had this problem with other new cars - not wanting to put miles on them. I don't really have much free time and bought the car to have a nice car to commute in, listen to XM, etc. But it bugs me that I will run up the miles even though I do have bumper-to bumper 100K warranty. My question: do other people put mileage on their cars like this? Should I worry about car quality? trade value in five or six years? Should that even be a concern? I appreciate your comments.

I don't worry about mileage on my cars. I just drive them as needed and enjoy them. Hyundai quality has proven to be top notch with the best in the business.
