    This is a tough question to answer when you don't know the history of the car. Best, most conservative practice would be to do the coolant every 30,000 or so miles and the transmission fluid every 60,000 or so miles.

    A word of caution: don't get them flushed with a machine, and don't do it at Jiffy Lube. The fluids should be changed as a part of routine maintenance performed by a high-quality report shop.
