Cheap and easy maintenance


I would agree, usually a good idea but not always the case, buy a Ford Focus with 150000 miles that has never been changed but working ok - very bad idea to change that.

In my case I bought a 2008 Buick with 120000 miles on it, changed the fluid and it immediately started slipping. Bought another 2011 Buick with 88000 miles on it and did a simple drain and fill and it also started slipping.... so I think thatís really car and case dependent because I ended up putting transmission in both.

That said every BMW that I have owned has responded very well to fluid and filter changes as well as every automatic Mustang Iíve ever owned.
