OK - first i want to apologize because this poll would be a lot different for the track rats. I did not allow for you folks, and you are a large part of our audience/community , if not the majority. Still, this is about how often we change out our transmission fluid. I was surprised to see the 45k mile interval in the maintenance schedule. I know most do it more often than that. So, where are our intervals - when do you change yours?

This will be fun.

using the standard "The owners manual says" every 45K.

For street use, that sounds good.

sure - annually for me also. Might be overkill for a street car getting only 5k miles/year, but better to be safe imo. But we need the VINS on those 3 "never"s. haha.

funny - so far it's nearly an even split between "annually" and "never".
