    A lot of car manufacturers went to these "sealed for life transmissions" and found out "life" was 80,000 miles. At the time a car range we work on the oil was $80 a quart retail and the dealer didn't stock it, now is $10 a quart because they see it should be changed.
    I would change it every 30K especially if you tow or drive off road certainly every 60K. at a minimum.
