2000-3000 rpm is fine, don't worry .

The rev limiter is around 5000 rpm in park .

I've no idea what gear spur damage is but there has been no damage to the engine or anything else.

Limiting the redline in park is done, AFAIK, to keep from overheating the torque converter and/or transmission fluid. What's gear spur damage? I've never heard the term before.

Well trying rev a car to redline is not to smart . you should have a load on engine when doing such a thing, that is why they have rev limit so low .

Gear spur damage is similar to boot spur damage, only without the assless chaps.

A spur gear is a straight tooth gear . 2 examples in car would be crank timing chain gear and reverse gear in many standard transmission .

In 2.4L the counter balance shafts have spur gears .

I actually misspoke , the balance shafts don't use spur gears and the crank, cams are technically sprockets .
but its still just basic straight cut gear .

Many US companies use spur gears for oil pump , there not used to much in cars as they tend to be loud and weaker than angle cut gears (helical ) .

As usual, Edaccord08 hit the nail on the head. Load. If there is no load on the engine you should not rev the engine too high. That resistance keeps all the moving parts tight. With no load and high rpm, the engine sort of rattles it's self on the inside. In neutral, 2,000 rpm is no problem
